The Environmental Studies Program

At Nebraska’s Environmental Studies Program, we seek students who seek change.

We help them discover their passion, and provide the knowledge and skills needed to turn it into a lifetime of action.

In a positive, nurturing, collaborative learning environment, we prepare them to solve current and future local, regional, and global environmental challenges.

We pair a truly interdisciplinary curriculum with a student-centered approach that emphasizes community engagement, compelling internship opportunities, and fulfilling education abroad.

Through fantastic teaching, excellent advising and real-world research experiences, we teach students to think critically, to problem solve strategically and to challenge stale ideas. We teach them to communicate their own ideas clearly and effectively.

We prepare them to lead.

Our graduates go on to careers in environment and public health, sustainability, environmental education, and as entrepreneurs.

It’s their job to make the world a better place.

Make it yours.
