Undergraduate majors in the school are well prepared for graduate study or to enter management, law enforcement and/or public information-education fields related to fisheries and often are able to find summer field work opportunities during their undergraduate studies through cooperating state and federal agencies. The school operates coastal facilities at Juneau, Kodiak, Seward and Kasitsna Bay and also the 133-foot National Science Foundation oceanographic vessel R/V Alpha Helix for seagoing research and education.
