AlaskaMester aims to connect, educate and engage cohorts of visiting students for a semester-long, transformative learning experience. With curriculum centered around Alaska’s unique biogeographical and cultural landscapes, our featured coursework will explore Alaska’s unique natural history, natural resources, and the impact of climate change in the Arctic through diverse mediums. Every spring AlaskaMester functions as a cohorted experience. Students from universities all over the country will arrive at UAF as visiting scholars for a semester-long experience of a lifetime. Not only will students engage in curated, exceptional UAF coursework but will also be provided structured opportunities to interact experientially with interior Alaska’s outdoor and cultural opportunities such as aurora walks, permafrost exploration, ice climbing and glacial expeditions.
