The University of Alaska is a land-, sea- and space-grant system of higher education established in 1917. The UA system’s three universities [UAA, UAF, UAS] are separately accredited institutions with 13 community campuses and extended learning centers across the State of Alaska.
The University of Alaska inspires learning, and advances and disseminates knowledge through teaching, research, and public service, emphasizing the North and its diverse peoples, and offers 500 unique degree, certificate or endorsement programs. All three universities in the UA system deliver extensive e-Learning instruction anywhere students are located. Study areas include short-course workforce training, associate degrees, bachelor’s and master’s degrees, as well as doctorates.
The University of Alaska and its graduates are the backbone of the state’s economy. Our alumni hold jobs in health care, aviation, engineering, journalism, teaching, logistics, research, technology, and in nearly every segment of our workforce. Alaska benefits economically from the investment in quality higher education.
