Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources

General Information

The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) cooperates with the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) in providing four-semester pre-agricultural sciences, pre-natural resources, pre-food science and technology, pre-turf and landscape management, and pre-horticulture transfer programs. A student enrolled in these programs may transfer all satisfactorily completed academic credits identified in the suggested program of study, and enter CASNR to study toward a major leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in agricultural sciences or Bachelor of Science degree in natural resources. The total program would require a minimum of four years or eight semesters (15 credit hours/semester or 120 credit hours).

UNL CASNR faculty teach horticulture and food science and technology courses at UNO to assist an urban population in better understanding the food processing, horticulture, and landscape horticulture industries. For further information on these classes, see the “Course Descriptions” section in this catalog.
