Joint BS. Fisheries through UAS and UAF

The B.S. degree in Fisheries Science provides students with the opportunity to learn biological principles and skills in lecture, laboratory and field courses with a core curriculum in Fisheries. Student research is emphasized throughout the program. The program has faculty actively involved in a wide range of disciplines, including marine ecology, behavioral ecology, marine mammalogy, marine pollution, crustacean physiology, and marine phycology. The B.S. in Fisheries Science provides students with the knowledge base, skill sets and hands-on experience to obtain positions in state, federal and nongovernmental fisheries and natural resources conservation and management agencies in Alaska and throughout North America. Graduates with this degree will be particularly qualified to work for traditional state, provincial, federal, Alaska Native, and Native American agencies in the areas of marine and freshwater fisheries biology and management and fisheries social science. The B.S. in Fisheries Science is offered jointly between UAS and UAF; students have the option of completing their degree at Juneau or Fairbanks, most courses listed below can be taken at either university, and many are offered distance or online.
