University of Alaska Fairbanks


At UAF we don’t just offer degree programs — we offer life-changing experiences and boundless opportunity. Engineer and build bridges. Learn to speak Yup’ik. Launch a rocket. Monitor muskoxen. You’ll venture outside the classroom, where fieldwork really is in the field — unless it’s in the forest, ocean, or any of the rugged terrain that makes up Alaska’s vast, natural laboratory. Around here, if you’re game, you’re in.
