UAS Fisheries Technology Program and UAF School of Fish and Ocean Sciences Agreement
UAS and UAF Provosts have both just approved an articulation agreement.
UAS and UAF Provosts have both just approved an articulation agreement that gives UAS Fisheries Technology graduates the option of continuing their studies at a bachelor’s degree level in fisheries at UAF SFOS.
The purpose of the articulation agreement is to provide a clear link from the UAS Fisheries Technology Associates of Applied Science degree and the UAF Bachelors of Science in Fisheries degree. This agreement will allow students with the AAS in Fisheries Technology to continue their schooling with the BS in Fisheries at SFOS, and to use credits from the AAS in Fisheries Technology to satisfy requirements for the BS in Fisheries from SFOS. The process of reaching the articulation has required high levels of collaboration between the two schools, with courses being matched and approved by course directors and departments on both campuses. This process has resulted in a document that provides a clear understanding between the two schools on which UAS courses will count for the corresponding course at UAF. The result will be that UAS-K Fisheries Technology AAS program graduates will have an estimated 2.5 -3 years of course work in addition to the AAS in Fisheries Technology to be able to earn the BS in Fisheries from UAF. The hope is that this will entice graduates with the AAS in Fisheries Technology who want to earn a BS in Fisheries to do so through UAF SFOS.
