- Biomechanics - UNO offers one of the few programs in the country where students can receive an undergraduate education in biomechanics, offering a Bachelor of Science in Biomechanics and Minor in Biomechanics. Biomechanics is the study of forces that act on the body and the effects they produce. Biomechanists work in collecting and analyzing biological and movement-related data, examine the efficacy of drugs that affect movement, and generate biotechnologies that improve functionality and monitor mobility. The study of biomechanics is a unique intersection of biology, physiology, anatomy, physics, mathematics, and chemistry to solve difficult problems in medicine and health.
This program is an excellent choice for students planning to continue their education in professional schools for physical or occupational therapy, or medicine and other science-based programs.
The Department of Biomechanics and Center for Research in Human Movement Variabiilty are housed in the 56,000 square foot Biomechanics Research Building. The facility includes labs for human biomechanics, cardiovascular/tissue biomechanics, insect biomechanics, balance and strength, virtual reality, and 3D printing. Additional spaces include: Senior Design Studio, Machine Shop, Conference Rooms, Graduate Offices, Computer Labs, Evaluation Rooms, Consultation Rooms, and a teaching lab.
Unique Academic Programs
- Tribal Management and Emergency Services Minor - Tribal management and emergency services provides an in depth cross-section of the tribal management and emergency services profession. At present, there are more than 575 recognized U.S. Tribal Nations. Each of these nations possess inherent rights of self-governance that are expected to simultaneously conduct governmental tribal functions while cooperating and complying with many local, state, and federal government regulations and laws.
This complex system of administration presents many challenges for Native Governments, particularly when faced with natural or man-made disasters that threaten tribal lands and interests. These threats to tribal communities are often compounded by lack of resources existing in reservation populations. Understanding the complex legal, historical, and cultural issues affecting tribal government management and provision of crisis response is essential to provide routine and emergency services to native communities.
- Holocaust and Genocide Studies Minor - The mission of the Holocaust and Genocide Studies Faculty is to promote and facilitate the scholarly study of the Holocaust and other historical genocides throughout history. One of its chief mandates is to provide an interdisciplinary approach in which the topic of HGS is covered in a variety of departments/programs and from a variety of perspectives. The HGS minor is intended to both create a student who is more aware of the importance of genocide in both past and present and to prepare them for potential careers in fields related to the HGS. The following are key objectives of the minor:
Learn the history of genocide from a global and comparative perspective
Learn the history of genocide in an interdisciplinary context
Master core competencies in other disciplines and majors with the Holocaust and Genocide as the subject matter
Recognize the current relevance of the study of the Holocaust and genocide
Gain a working knowledge of methods of prevention, intervention, and justice for instances of genocide throughout history
Develop “moral muscles” that enable students to recognize and react to injustices occurring at home and abroad
Prepare students for a variety of careers in both public and private sector that focus on the recognition, prevention, intervention, amelioration, and prosecution of genocide and mass atrocity.
- Information Technology (IT) Innovation Major/Minor - The IT Innovation (ITIN) program involves the study of entrepreneurship as it relates to IT and an individual field of interest.
- Service Learning Academy - Courses with a Service Learning component are found in all colleges at the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO) and multiple programs within the University.
Service learning is an experiential method of teaching. Collaborative partnerships between faculty, students, and community organizations create projects that are tightly linked to course content and promote academic learning while meeting the needs of the community.
- Medical Humanities Major/Minor - An education with a humanities perspective on health and medicine shapes individuals to think critically, compassionately and knowledgeably about the human condition, appreciate and respect diverse communities, and develop reflective and resilient habits of the mind.
A major in Medical Humanities prepares graduates for health care occupations through its focus on the humanistic aspects of medicine that promote patient centered care and resilient professionals.
