Degree: Spanish
Graduation Year: 2015

I loved UAA! I came to UAA after five semesters at another school. I was not expecting to enjoy UAA, but to my surprise, I absolutely adored it. If I had known how much I'd like it, I would have gone there in the first place. I felt that the lower division classes weren't difficult, but that I was able to make them as challenging as I wanted to. For instance, I had to take English 121. I'd already taken upper division English classes and was expecting to be bored, but my professor was wonderful, and because I was trying to get as much out of the class as I could, I ended up feeling challenged and engaged with the course and course material. I felt that my upper division courses were very rigorous. I appreciated the quality and dedication of my professors. I majored in Spanish and minored in Theatre, and I loved all of my Spanish and theatre professors. I learned so much from them, and their mentorship has meant the world to me. I also have had many professional opportunities because of my professors. I would recommend UAA to anybody. I am so grateful for my time there.

Degree: Logistics, Materials, and Supply Chain Management
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Alaska, Anchorage is a university that serves a wide range of students, ranging from your traditional college student, to college athletes, former professionals, and military veterans. This reflects within the classroom, as many of the business courses that you take during your time at UAA have a wide mix of individuals with different backgrounds and life's experiences allow for the creation of rich discussion in the classroom. The Logistics program at UAA is wonderful. The program head, Dr. Prokop, is a wonderful professor, who does an excellent job and encouraging students to think analytically and examine the deeper problems which may be present in the real world. The class size was small, often consisting of approximately 15 or students in the required logistics courses. This allowed for the building of relationships with both your classmates and the professor. A downside to the Logistics program, which was only realized in hindsight after my completion of the program, is the material covered is really just a skimming of the possible material. If you find that you truly enjoy Logistics and Supply Chain Management, you will likely want to pursue a graduate degree in the subject, as here you will gain the knowledge which you likely desire.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

University of Alaska Anchorage was a wonderful place to obtain my undergraduate degree. The Health Sciences department had staff that pushed us outside of our comfort zones, forcing us to approach the issues of domestic violence, homelessness, mental health, healthcare inequality, and other issues surrounding us on a daily basis. Anchorage is a large community, but like every city in Alaska is somewhat isolated. The department did their best to allow us networking opportunities with professionals in our field. The academic advisers are top notch! The Health Sciences program at UAA has 100% made me a more critical thinker and given me a passion for seeking to provide quality care to all in my community. I believe without a doubt it has made me better prepared for my graduate studies.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020

I have loved most of the teachers I have had so far, they have all been more than willing to go the distance to further my education. They take extra time out of their week to make sure students understand the material they teach and I feel as if they honestly care about the people they teach. I enjoy going to class but I'm hardly challenged. I find the work easy but also needed.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2011

It did not prepare me for the real world. The criminal justice classes taught me very little about the justice process and all the paperwork involved. I learned everything I needed to know from on the job training.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2011

The professors and classes were good. Location of campus is convenient to drive to, although it is spread out so walking between classes can be a pain. The library is excellent.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2011

Having smaller class sizes with personal relationships with instructors made UAA an attractive school on par with those with more prestige. In addition, the potential for outdoor activities in Alaska, in a pristine environment, abound.

Graduation Year: 2013

The Alaska schools (at least UAA & UAF) are not great in my opinion as far as administrative and gen eds, but the Geomatics program at UAA was quite good. They have some 5 faculty and I would happily recommend the program to anyone considering it.
