Doctoral Programs

Students who wish to pursue a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences at the University of Alaska Anchorage may do so via collaborative programs with the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Students engaged in research with a UAA faculty member may apply to the following UAF Ph.D. programs: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Biology and Wildlife, or Fisheries and Ocean Sciences. A UAA faculty mentor can advise the applicant on which program is most appropriate for the course of study.  Each collaborative program has different admissions, degree, and residency requirements. Please visit the UAF Graduate School's website for additional information. We ask Ph.D. applicants to send a complete copy of their application packet to our office for our files and highly recommend that applicants include the name of their UAA faculty mentor in their application's cover letter. This will ensure a smoother application process. 

You can find more information in the Biological Sciences Graduate Programs section of the UAA Catalog.
