Undergraduate Programs

Prospective Undergraduate Students

Welcome, future Nanook! Thank you for your interest in our undergraduate programs here at the College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences. We offer a Bachelor of Arts in Fisheries, a Bachelor of Science in Fisheries and Marine Sciences, a Minor in Fisheries, and a Minor in Marine Science. Please feel free to explore our site and reach out to us at the Academic Programs Office at uaf-cfos-academics@alaska.edu if you have any questions.

At CFOS, we emphasize the importance of learning not only in the classroom, but also through hands-on experiences: internships, research in the lab and out in the field, and the opportunity to work directly with fisheries and marine sciences professionals in different communities across Alaska.

We also offer undergraduate students the unique option of studying at other University of Alaska campuses for a portion of their undergraduate degree. This program provides flexibility to students and allows them to take advantage of the diverse opportunities found in Alaska’s coastal and Interior communities.

CFOS has fisheries facilities in both Fairbanks and Juneau. We have students and faculty located in Fairbanks, Juneau, and spread across the state of Alaska, so most of our courses are offered via distance delivery.

Begin your studies at any UA campus, and finish in Fairbanks or Juneau!
