Don't just gain knowledge—create it.

URSA (Undergraduate Research & Scholarly Activity) is UAF's resource for the development and promotion of experiential learning activities that engage undergraduate students to support UAF's goal to become a leading student-focused research university.

Building on existing efforts and capacities, URSA enables UAF students to pursue varying levels of research engagement from a single credit of first-year seminar to independent scholarly investigations or a senior thesis including a BFA exhibit or performance.

Undergraduate research at UAF covers a broad spectrum of disciplines, from climate sciences to music, engineering, anthropology, life sciences, and theater.
