Program Overview

University of Nebraska offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Science for students who are interested in learning about the environmental and agricultural science utilized in farming and industry. Students will develop a foundation of the scientific knowledge in agriculture which is necessary for education in chemistry, biology, and the processes involved in the raising of crop and livestock agriculture.  Students will learn about planting, horticulture, soils, livestock feed, and the accounting, financial, and business chain aspects of production of agriculture.

The program consists of courses which will foster an understanding of agriculture through the study of natural and applied science. Classes include topics of food, agriculture, and natural resources systems, investigations of applied science, resource and environmental economics, resource-efficient crop management, principles of soil management, crop management strategies, plant nutrition and much more.  

Through completion of the program, students will have demonstrated their qualifications in the science of agriculture.  These qualifications include but are not limited to: the ability to demonstrate an understanding of the science of agriculture, to demonstrate an understanding of economics, accounting and finance and how they relate to the business of agriculture, to show an understanding of the process of planting crops and the crop cycle, and to display an understanding of livestock agriculture and the process of raising livestock.

    School Overview

    The University of Nebraska - Lincoln has been in the distance education business for more than 100 years. The Lincoln campus, located in Lincoln, Nebraska, was chartered by the legislature in 1869 as a land-grant university. Since 1909, distance education became a part of the school, providing opportunities to individuals with a lack of local options for education. The paper-based correspondence courses of the 20th Century eventually evolved into the online distance education programs of today - offering the same quality and rigor of on-campus counterparts.

    Programs extend from bachelor's programs, to graduate opportunities, including several different doctoral degrees. Studies range from science and business, to education and human services. Programs are offered completely online, in addition to blended formats.
