U.S. graduate students
Choose UAF for your graduate education and work with internationally known faculty in Alaska's abundant natural resources. Glaciers, rivers, and wildlife are within easy reach, and the aurora borealis appears frequently to intrigue our space physicists. Our geographic location and expert faculty combine to give UAF a well-earned reputation for arctic and northern research. UAF is Alaska's leading Ph.D.-granting university and is America's arctic university.
UAF offers master's and the doctor of philosophy degrees in a number of programs. The Office of the Graduate School provides information and assistance for prospective and current graduate students, including orientation, teaching assistant training and several scholarship and fellowship programs.
All graduate applicants are strongly encouraged to review the website for the program they are interested in, as some academic units have additional, department-specific requirements. Failure to address departmental requirements may delay the admission process. Links to departmental websites, faculty bios and contact information can be found at the Graduate School website. Make sure to review your department's requirements and the Graduate School's suggestions on what to do before you apply.
