About

The Master of Applied Science, offered by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, is a practitioner degree for individuals directly involved in agriculture, food, education and natural resource related industries. The program is available to both residential and distance students.

Overview

Both specializations are supported by distance-delivered courses to the extent that a student may complete a degree without ever being on campus, courses may also be taken locally. This master degree in Applied Science is offered at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. 

Since this is a college-wide degree program, there is wide latitude in the selection of areas of study. An individual curriculum is designed for each student with the goal of best fitting the student's educational objective(s). The student, advisor, and supervisory committee jointly establish this curriculum.

Students can also choose from two specializations: Science for Educators to acquire new and enhance science content knowledge or Community Development which equips students with the tools and educational experiences to contribute to positive changes in communities and regions. A unique feature of the master's program is the degree project. The degree project replaces the traditional master's thesis and is specifically intended to be of immediate value in the student's workplace for career advancement.
