UAF Bristol Bay Campus has a partnership with the University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Fisheries & Ocean Sciences to offer a Fisheries Bachelor of Arts degree almost entirely distantly.

The goal of the125 credit BA Fisheries degree is to provide students with the knowledge base, skill sets, and hands-on experience to be highly competitive in obtaining positions within the fishing and seafood processing industries in Alaska.

Undergraduates that have completed the Bachelor of Arts in Fisheries degree program will be competitive for a wide variety of agency and organization positions, particularly within the state of Alaska.

Graduates with this degree will be qualified to work for traditional fisheries governmental agencies in the areas of business administration, policy development, fisheries education and outreach, or as social scientists. Also, this degree program will also prepare students for graduate school in these areas.
