The School of Biological Sciences

At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's School of Biological Sciences, we embrace a broad understanding of the life sciences – from cellular and molecular processes to whole organisms and ecosystems.

Our 42 full-time faculty members work collaboratively, incorporating multiple disciplines and organizational levels.

Our graduate students specialize within the broad world of biology by creating their own individualized program of study. Our undergraduates get a strong background in fundamentals of life sciences that allow them to specialize to meet their career goals.

Our distinguished faculty work hand-in-hand with our students. We get our students out of the textbook and into real-world education experiences. From using human cadavers as learning tools to applying hands-on field research to fascinating problems at Cedar Point Biological Station, our students will learn by doing.

Our classrooms at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln – as well as the field station, research centers and labs – offer our students and faculty access to cutting edge facilities and technology. We offer competitive research and teaching assistantships that prepare students for successful careers in a variety of professional sectors.
