Department of Biological Sciences

We provide a supportive and dynamic educational experience for our undergraduate and graduate students. The Department currently offers graduate training leading to a Ph.D. degree in Integrative Biology and the Master's of Science (MS) degree in Biological Sciences. A new one-year Master’s of Science (MS) program is now available with a concentration in Biomedical Sciences. 

“What brought me to UNO was the small campus size, the small class size, as well as the active role that the teachers play in teaching their students and the research opportunities here in the biology department.” ~Michael Connick (Biology Pre-Med Major)
