The University of Alaska is committed to working closely with all federal and state agencies and the private sector to develop collaboration and new exposures for growth in all areas of science and technology. Current research spans many disciplines, much of it focusing on issues that affect Alaskans and their way of life. UA’s locations across the state give it access to a variety of environments and populations. UA faculty and researchers are experts in their fields. Both graduates and undergraduates benefit from studying with some of the nation's top scientists. If it's about the North, chances are it's being studied right here.
The largest hubs (UAA, UAF and UAS) are separately accredited institutions, as is Prince William Sound Community College in Valdez. System-wide, nearly 33,000 full- and part-time students are enrolled, studying among 500 unique degree, certificate or endorsement programs. Study areas include short-course workforce training, associate degrees, bachelor’s and master’s degrees, as well as doctorates. Programs include a wide array of the sciences, engineering, teacher and early childhood education, business, journalism and communications, aviation, health occupations, history, English, the arts and humanities and many others.
