The School of Education offers four degrees: Bachelor of Education (admission suspended), Master of Arts in Teaching, Master of Education, and Educational Specialist. The school also offers post-baccalaureate coursework and internship experiences preparing candidates for Alaska state licensure in teaching (Type A). In addition, an M.Ed. degree program in guidance and counseling prepares educators to be elementary and secondary school counselors.
The UAF School of Education is approved by the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development (NASDTEC) to recommend its students for Alaska licensure as elementary and secondary teachers and school counselors. School of Education faculty are located on the Fairbanks campus and UAF's rural campuses. In keeping with the school's commitment to prepare educators for rural Alaska, courses are available on-site and by distance delivery through the Barrow, Bethel, Dillingham, Interior, Kotzebue and Nome campuses, as well as on the Fairbanks campus. Faculty research in cross-cultural studies, curriculum and instruction, language and literacy, and small rural schools supports the School of Education's mission.
