"UAF is the Center for Life Advancement. This is where students discover their passions and apply their knowledge and skills to enhance their lives and the lives of those around them” -Maya Salganek, Theatre & Film.
A liberal arts education sharpens critical thinking and comprehension skills necessary to navigate life and the workforce; unleashes creative passions, provides opportunities to hone and practice knowledge and talents, and provides a conduit to experience a more fulfilling life.
The world is interconnected. Ideas, concepts, theories, policies, governments, organizations and organisms both big and small live exist in a web of connections. A liberal arts degree is about those connections and a liberal arts curriculum engages students to explore those connections for deeper meaning and understanding when thinking about problems and solutions.
Here's what students have to say about our programs...
