Academic Advising

Your success at Nebraska is important to us. Biochemistry employs two professional academic advisors, in addition to our faculty. Advising is not just about course selection – it’s about goals, having an advocate, and getting the most out of college.

Please see your advisor at least once a year. We are happy to see you more often!

Britta Osborne is the Chief Academic Advisor and Recruiter for Biochemistry. She began professional advising in 2002 at Indiana University and joined the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2007. She co-teaches Biochemistry 101: Career Opportunities in Biochemistry. A native of Milwaukee, WI, Britta now lives in Lincoln with her husband, daughters and pesky cat, Samwise. Hobbies include pop-science nonfiction, organic gardening, and biking.
