The 2020 Course List is here! Check it out at the bottom of the page!
The University of Nebraska's 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 2019 included one ARTP 383 class (Working with Watercolor, offered in partnership with the Department of Art and Art History) and one ENGL 317 class (Literature and the Environment, offered in partnership with the English department). See Art at CPBS for a description of the art program. Many of our courses are taught every year, but a few are taught on rotation. Please click on the course name for more information in the course listing table below.
Please keep in mind that classes fill on a first come, first serve basis, so if you see a class that you want to take, please contact us as soon as you can!
If you are not a student of Nebraska, you are still welcome to take courses! Please see our information and helpful links about visiting student applications on our FAQ page.
