Support the Environmental Studies Program

Support the Environmental Studies Program

Since the fall of 2009, the number of students in the Environmental Studies program has grown from 90 to more than 130. The Environmental Studies major is designed for students who want to make a difference and contribute to solving current as well as future environmental challenges on a local to global scale.

Solutions to such problems as climate change, pollution, and resource conservation require individuals who have a broad-based knowledge in the natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities. UNL offers a distinct program utilizing a holistic approach and a framework of sustainability. This framework recognizes the necessity of meeting current resource needs without compromising the environment and the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Environmental Studies major s acquire a broad-based education in the physical, biological, and social sciences, competency in a specific discipline, and the skills necessary to work across disciplines and to be competitive in the job market.
