University of Nebraska Medical Center

OPPORTUNITY: UNO Classes offered on UNMC Campus


 Associate Dean Meyer asked that staff in the SAHP take note of this important opportunity:


To help increase accessibility for UNMC employees to jump-start or further their undergraduate education UNMC will be hosting UNO classes. The classes offered can be taken to complete a Bachelor of General Studies degree (BGS), a Bachelor of Science degree (BS), a Bachelor of Arts degree (BA), or just for fun!


The BGS degree is a fully accredited 125 hour undergraduate degree program for students 21 and older. With a BGS degree, you can either choose to focus on one of over 40 areas of concentration ranging from Healthcare Administration to Theatre, or concentrate on three areas of emphasis. The BGS program also gives students the opportunity to complete their degree online. Another advantage to this program is that all credits previously earned at an accredited institution will count towards your degree.
