Why UAF School of Education?
The School of Education (SOE) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks faculty and staff
strive to model, in their interactions with candidates at both the preservice and
graduate levels, the three critical characteristics that our candidates embody when
they leave the program: professional, culturally responsive, and effective. These
characteristics form the basis for our graduates’ continued professional development
and the formation of healthy and respectful relationships with their students, families
and communities in which they live and work.
In this spirit, the School of Education is committed to preparing and retaining the best possible K-12 educators for this far north, geographically, culturally and linguistically diverse state. UAF’s School of Education offers undergraduate and graduate level programs to students across the state through distance delivered instruction and the opportunity for educational internships in Alaska’s diverse school districts. Face to face coursework is available in both Fairbanks and Anchorage for our most popular teacher certification programs.
