UAS was established on July 1, 1987 with the restructuring and consolidation of the former University of Alaska Juneau, Ketchikan Community College, and Islands Community College (Sitka).
UAS offers both online and on-campus programs in the sciences, including marine biology, English, social science, liberal arts, business, education, construction, power technology, fisheries, maritime training, health sciences, and more.
Although we are a small university, we seek to contribute in big ways to the understanding of the unique biocultural region we inhabit, including its premier coastal rainforest, majestic icefields, and glaciers, and rich marine ecosystems.
You will find in our links to projects and publications studies on the Tongass National Forest, the Juneau Icefield, and the coastal waters of Southeast Alaska.
Much of our environmental research is coordinated through the pioneering Alaska Coastal Rainforest Center, as well as our highly-respected Environmental Science, Marine Biology, and Fisheries programs.
The Juneau campus Career Services Office is located in the lower level of the Mourant Building. Our Career Services Coordinator assists students at all three of our campuses with career exploration, resume development, cover letter composition, interviewing skills, and ‘how to conduct an effective job search.’
Our office is dedicated to providing quality services to the students, parents, faculty and staff, and to support the University of Alaska’s educational goals through the correct assessment of student fees, collections procedures, and receipting the University funds.
