The Geology program from the University of Nebraska Omaha is part of the Department of Geography/Geology and is dedicated to educating students in the Geological Sciences.


The Geology program at the University of Nebraska Omaha not only prepares students for a variety of geoscience careers, but also provides a broad education in the Arts & Sciences, which prepares students for careers in other fields and areas.


Graduates from UNO’s Geology Program will be well-prepared to enter the workforce and pursue a career in the geosciences field.  This could include working in the environmental geology and environmental engineering field, exploration for energy and mineral resources, in the policy and education areas, as well as being prepared to continue on to graduate school.  Because our graduates are educated in the broad sciences as well as Geology, they are also uniquely qualified for careers outside of traditional fields (for example, environmental law, administrative positions in science related organizations, K-12 education, etc.).
