UAA carries out a great deal of theoretical and applied research, and in nearly every discipline, there are ample opportunities for undergraduate students to join research teams and collaborate with experienced faculty mentors. Many students work as paid research assistants on specific projects, complete meaningful research activities with real-world impacts, and win grants to pursue their own research interests.
At UAA, research is an integral part of the graduate school experience. Our graduate students need the opportunity to dig deeper — to learn and practice the latest methods, to strive for innovations that are meaningful and relevant right here in Alaska. Whether in health, engineering, or the physical and social sciences, our graduate students are given the tools and the guidance they need to step into the lab or the field with confidence.
