Biological and Environmental Sciences Degrees & Programs
Atmospheric Sciences encompasses many areas of study that explore the atmosphere's physical characteristics, motions and processes, and how these influence all aspects of the environment and human life.
A degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology can serve as a springboard to medical school or numerous other science-based career paths.
The biology curriculum is designed to provide students with up-to-date training in the biological sciences, including fields of concentration in ecology and evolution as well as molecular and cellular biology.
Biomedical engineering is a broad field that involves using technology to solve medical problems. Learn more about how to study biomedical engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno.
The biotechnology program aims to produce well-trained researchers with theoretical knowledge, technical skills and real-world experience based on both academic research experiences and internships in the biotechnology industry.
The highly interactive program offers a wide range of study options dealing with contemporary biophysics, cancer, cell biology, chemical biology, immunology, insect biochemistry, microbiology, pharmacology and plant biology.
Our nationally recognized degree programs in civil and environmental engineering give you a chance to work with top faculty in world-class research facilities.
Managing & restoring forest ecosystems.
Molecular microbiology and immunology (MMI) provides in-depth studies at the molecular and cellular levels on the bacterial, viral, fungal and protozoan pathogens of humans.
Advanced study of the ecology, management, and restoration of range, forest, and wildlife ecosystems.
Students and faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno have the unique opportunity to study within this specialized area of research with access to cutting-edge technology, such as a new functional MRI facility—a partnership between our Center for Integrative Neuroscience and the Renown Health medical center.
The Rangeland Ecology & Management major is offered through the Departments of Natural Resources and Environmental Science (NRES) and Agriculture, Nutrition & Veterinary Science (ANVS).
