New Technology Governance Curriculum Announced

Tue, 03/30/2021

Beginning in the fall semester of 2021, the Nebraska Governance and Technology Center is excited to launch its new Technology Governance curriculum. This curriculum is designed to be integrated and modular, meaning that students are free to take any selection of classes on a stand-alone basis but that the classes are designed to consciously complement each other. The cornerstone of the curriculum is the three-week Concepts class, which is a pre-requisite to all other Technology Governance classes.  

All of these classes are taught at the College of Law, but classes are open to all graduate students at the University of Nebraska and may be open to advanced undergraduates on a case-by-case basis. 

Starting in fall 2022, students who have completed 5 credits from this curriculum will also be able to enroll in year-long seminar and workshop classes in which students will discuss current academic and other scholarly research relating to Technology Governance.  

Students interested in these topics may also be interested in a range of other classes taught by Center-affiliated faculty or at the College of Law. Such classes include topics such as intellectual property law; administrative, antitrust, and other forms of regulatory law; the whole panoply of international law courses, including trade and human rights; and courses offered as part of the Space, Cyber, and Telecom Law program such as Spectrum Law and Space & Satellite Business Law.  

For further information, including how to enroll in these classes, students should contact their registrar or the center's executive director, Elsbeth Magilton, at the College of Law. For more information on curriculum at Nebraska Law and registration please visit their current student page
