A brief description of the undergraduate degree program (1st program):

The field of Environmental Studies recognizes that finding solutions to the environmental challenges facing our society requires individuals with experience and training in a broad array of disciplines. Success in the field requires not only a scientific background to develop technical solutions but also an understanding of the social and economic implications of solutions and decisions. The Environmental Studies Program at UNO offers interdisciplinary undergraduate degrees that provide students with training in the breadth of disciplines required to understand the complex nature of solving environmental challenges. From the core requirements students acquire the scientific expertise as well as the necessary background in economics, public policy and law, sociology, and ethics to effectively pursue a career relating to the environment.

The Environmental Studies Program is committed to preparing students to help meet the environmental challenges facing us locally, nationally and globally. A degree in environmental studies provides the background, training and experience to pursue many career paths. Our graduates have successful careers with private environmental consulting firms, in environmental education, and with local, state, and federal environment and resource agencies. Many of our graduates continue their education by pursuing graduate degrees in science, public administration, and law.
