We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
There are many opportunities for social science students to get hands-on experience in their major field of study. This enhances your career prospects and your chance of being accepted into graduate school. These opportunities include:
• A long-term established program involving students from across the state: The Alaska Universities Legislative Internship Program
• Some short-term opportunities students have participated in over the past few years: • Study-abroad experience in France for one month in summer for History • Archeological research experience in Misty Fjords National Monument • Ethnographic research in Prince William Sound and Glacier Bay National Park
• On-going development of internship/research opportunities in Juneau such as • Internships with Alaska Mental Health Trust; Alaska Departments of Public Safety, Revenue, and Transportation; Alaska Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, etc. • Undergraduate research opportunities in Applied Child Psychology Research • Collaboration with the U.S. Forest Service
UAS social science faculty continually develop additional opportunities for students to match their interests. Be on the look out for more exciting opportunities coming your way!
