A tentative 2017 course list is up! Check it out at the bottom of the page!
The UNL School of Biological Sciences offers eight to ten courses at Cedar Point every summer. We also partner with other departments who offer one to two additional courses. Summer 2016 will include two ARTP 383 classes - Drawing from Nature and Photography, offered in partnership with the Department of Art and Art History. See Art at CPBS for a description of the entire program. A few courses are taught on a rotation of every other year.
Courses are split up into four, 3-week sessions with 2-3 courses each session. Each session begins with dinner on Sunday night of the first week and ends on Friday afternoon of the third week. Classes will meet all day Monday-Friday, and may include optional activities on the weekends. To learn more about a class, click on it's title below. Courses are experience-based learning with an emphasis on student research projects. Most students agree that their participation at Cedar Point was very special and a highlight of their educational experience at UNL.
You should enroll early with the Cedar Point office to ensure a spot in the course you want. Enrollments for all courses are "first come, first serve." Several of the courses will fill quickly, but we do create wait lists for courses that are full. Newly opened spots are filled by contacting the people on the waiting list in the same "first come, first serve" basis.
**Students who are not currently enrolled at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are always welcome to take courses at CPBS. If you have not completed an undergraduate degree you must fill out the visiting student application for admission in addition to your Cedar Point application. If you are a student of another of University of Nebraska's institutions (UNK, UNO, etc.), you will need to fill out the online intercampus application and the Cedar Point application. If you have completed a degree, or are currently enrolled as a graduate student in another institution, you need to apply for admission through the Graduate School. For more information see the Office of Graduate Studies - Visiting Student.
