College of Arts and Sciences

http://catalog.unomaha.edu/undergraduate/college-arts-sciences/

Vision Statement To be recognized and respected throughout the United States as one of the premier Colleges of Arts and Sciences at a metropolitan university, maximizing our resources to build exceptional programs related to teaching, scholarship, creative activity, outreach, and service. Mission Statement The College of Arts and Sciences is a liberal arts college within a metropolitan university.  The College serves as UNO’s standard-bearer for the tradition of liberal education, which emphasizes the importance of breadth of knowing and ways of knowing as central to a student’s education, and defending this view of education from critics who see the tradition as outdated, impractical, and unable to prepare students for the 21st century workforce.  Courses of instruction are offered in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences/mathematics, and interdisciplinary areas that cross traditional disciplinary lines in order to support a liberal education for the students of the College and to provide a significant portion of the general education requirements of the university.  We offer disciplinary and interdisciplinary majors and minors as well as programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels.  The College is committed to outstanding teaching and to significant scholarship and research activities of its faculty and students and encourages involvement with our metropolitan community and the world at large. The College endorses the goals articulated by the Strategic Plan of the University of Nebraska Omaha to (1) achieve academic excellence, (2) place students at the center of our academic enterprise, and (3) actively engage our community. General Information The College of Arts and Sciences offers Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees, with a diversity of majors from the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. The College also offers advising for many pre-professional programs preparing students for graduate or professional schools in medicine, allied health and law .         Academic majors are available in the following fields: bioinformatics, biology, molecular and biomedical biology, black studies, chemistry, economics, English, environmental science, foreign languages and literature, general science, geography, geology, history, interdisciplinary studies, international studies, Latino/Latin American studies, mathematics, medical humanities, neuroscience, philosophy, physics, political science, psychology, religion, sociology, and women’s and gender studies. The pre-professional programs of study are determined largely by the requirements of the graduate or professional schools which students intend to enter. If planned carefully, the requirements for a pre-professional program can also meet many of the requirements for a B.A. or B.S. degree. These pre-professional programs are not academic majors and a student seeking a degree from UNO must complete the requirements of a major as well. Pre-professional information can be found on the Arts and Sciences website .
