The School of Natural Resources features two graduate program tracks that offer options for a Master’s degree or a PhD:
We also offer minors to Master's students. These minors include:
- Water Resource Planning and Management
- Natural Resource Sciences
We encourage you to explore our programs and identify the research areas that match your interests. Before you apply to our programs, you must find a faculty advisor who will guide your studies. See the links below for a list of advising faculty in each program.
Geographers study the spatial dimensions of human societies and the Earth’s environment. Geography is a discipline that offers unique insights about past, present, and future issues involving natural resources, culture, economics and politics. For more than a century, the University of Nebraska – Lincoln has been internationally recognized as a center-of-excellence in geographic education and research.
The Natural Resource Sciences program at SNR investigates bio-atmospheric interactions, biological sciences, earth and water resources, and remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS). The broad diversity of climate, habitat, hydrology, soils, and surface and subsurface geology across Nebraska offers a great opportunity for field studies in each of these areas. What’s more, our faculty conduct research in various sites across the country and around the globe, providing our students an even broader perspective on their disciplines.
