School of Education: Preparing Educators to Transform Lives

The mission of the School of Education is to prepare educators and support the lifelong learning of professionals to embrace diversity and to be intellectually and ethically strong, resilient and passionate in their work with Alaska’s learners, families, educators and communities. Programs emphasize the power of learning to transform people’s lives. Across the university, faculty members teach professional educators to work in diverse settings, to form and sustain learning partnerships, and to provide learning across the life span.

The SOE offers undergraduate and graduate curricula and programs designed to prepare personnel for various professional roles related to education in a variety of learning environments. The school offers high-quality distance-delivered coursework in order to improve access for rural students and provide flexible scheduling for practicing educators. Graduate programs are offered entirely online. Undergraduate programs are offered online, in person, and hybrid. The Student Success Office works with faculty and students to support local placements for all students completing internships or other clinical field experiences.

Prospective students can learn more about our degrees and certificates by exploring SOE Programs. Current and former students can explore the Student Success Office resources for support, including applications and program completion verification.
