Bachelor's Degree:The UAF Justice Department has a long history of providing one of the University of Alaska's most popular undergraduate degree programs with its Bachelor of Arts in Justice.

Thanks to strong relationships with Justice agencies, the Department offers a range of internship opportunities for Justice majors. The Department utilizes an interdisciplinary approach to Justice research and instruction. It prides itself in having a tight-knit working group of faculty and staff and is known for being "student friendly."

Master of Arts in Administration of Justice: UAF's Justice Department added a Master of Arts in Justice Administration in 2001 making it UAF's first Master's degree program offered entirely on-line. The program was developed with the Justice professional in mind. Indeed, more than 90% of the students enrolled in the graduate program are full time employees in Justice professions.
Graduates of the program have gone on to represent all sectors of the Justice profession and are employed all over the nation. With input from Justice professionals, the curriculum was designed to prepare students for both supervisory and management positions. While the program is small in size, Justice professionals will find that the program's narrow emphasis on preparing students for supervisory and management positions may provide a more practical knowledge base than many of the other larger, nationally known programs that emphasize preparing masters students for Ph.D.s in Justice.
Minor in Alternative Dispute Resolution: In May 2013, the Justice Department added a minor in Alternative Dispute Resolution making UAF the only program in the country with a Justice major and an ADR minor.
