University of Alaska Southeast
The University of Alaska Southeast is a supportive, diverse learning community set amidst unparalleled natural beauty. Cutting edge undergraduate field research makes the most of a spectacular environment. At UAS you can study environmental science at the only university in the U.S. next to a glacier, marine biology in prime habitat for whales and seals and English literature in the footsteps of John Muir in the Tongass National Forest.
Study tide pools behind your classroom, hike the glacier to check a UAS weather station, take the stage with Alaska’s theatre company or be an intern in the state legislature in Juneau, Alaska’s capital city.
UAS attracts dynamic, involved faculty members, experts in their fields drawn by the same things that attract our students: the Alaskan wilderness, relaxed lifestyle and a small campus environment. The University of Alaska Southeast is small enough that your professors know you by name. Yet we offer a wide variety of college degrees.
