The NEBRASKA difference

Nebraska is your campus when you’re a student in AESC!

You’ll take classes on both East Campus and City Campus, and explore agricultural and environmental programs and research at UNL facilities across the state.

Additionally, you’ll be able to work with expert communicators in the ALEC department’s Educational Media (EdMedia) unit. These professionals work with clients each day to produce multimedia materials illustrating the world-class teaching, research and extension work produced by faculty and staff in the agricultural and environmental sciences across Nebraska.
