Degree: International Relations and National Security Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2012

UAA is a large school with many resources, but it's up to you to seek them out. Make sure that you're taking advantage of the Learning Center. They helped me so much with my essay structure. I also appreciated Accounting tutoring and French tutoring. Parking is stressful; learn to take the bus, free with your UA ID.

Degree: Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

I think that most of what i learned for my degree in business management was not actually applicable to my career, but i have been enjoying my marketing major classes. The food on residencial campus was not great. Living on residentual campus was fun; a very good community!

Degree: Communication, Journalism, and Related Programs, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

The cost of classes went up 15% over the time I was there. Four years, 15%. You also pay shuttle/gym/events/sports fees even if you are online for a semester or if you have a parking permit you paid for, which is $300 a year. The cost just continues to go up and the GER professors seem to realize that their class is required and that there is only one college in the state of Alaska and take advantage of the fact that they don't need to teach very well. If you do not have

Degree: Business
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: 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: English
Graduation Year: 2012

UAA was affordable as an Alaska Resident, and I felt that I was getting a quality education. The campus is beautiful. I learned a lot and would recommend it to others

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.

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.

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2015

I am attending the University of Alaska Anchorage for a Bachelors in Construcion Project Management. I already work and the industry and I am finding myself dissatisfied with the curriculum offered at the biggest university in our state. So I decided to look into ITT Tech since it is the only other school that offers the degree up in AK (strange, since construction is and has been a booming industry up here for the last 20 years +). Honestly, I'm sad to see all the reviews from people that have attended ITT Tech on the difficulty finding jobs and deficient education. At the same time, I'm disheartened that as I attend a real university the education is just as lacking.... No wonder no one in this generation is moving forward. The false advertising by educational institutes is absurd. For the cost we pay in tuition (and made up ridiculous fees), these institutions should be held to a higher standard and be responsible for provindig students with a worthwhile education...
