The University of Alaska Fairbanks is enriched by its location in the North, Alaska’s diverse cultures, rich history, unique geography and environment. Distinctive for its strong research programs, UAF engages students in hands-on, quality education at the undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral levels.
UAF — Alaska’s top teaching and research university, and the state’s only Ph.D.-granting institution — offers programs in engineering, mining, liberal arts, natural sciences, mathematics, rural and community development, education, fisheries, ocean sciences, business management, natural resources management, and agricultural sciences. Students can choose from 170 degrees and 33 certificates in 129 different disciplines, and have access to independent study programs, special majors, career internships, and exchange and honors programs.
To those outside the state, Alaska may seem like a foreign country. To Alaskans, it’s 360 million acres of possibilities waiting to be explored.
Fairbanks, Alaska’s second-largest city, is the perfect base camp. It combines the friendliness of a small town with big-city advantages like national retail stores and a thriving arts scene. Fairbanksans come from all over Alaska, the United States and the world, and belong to a surprising range of ethnic, religious, cultural and language groups. People come to Alaska to explore and get more out of life. They come to UAF for the same reason. There’s passive learning, and then there’s active learning. Want active learning? Get it at UAF.
