Degrees Programs and Courses
Information about the undergraduate Bachelor's Degree in Political Science.
The Political Science department offers two minors. Our Law and Society minor is a program of special interest to students who plan graduate studies in law, careers in government service or the legal field. We also offer a minor in Environmental Politics in which students are introduced to the politics of environmental policy-making in local, national, and global arenas
We offer a concentration in Environmental Politics and Policy through the Northern Studies Master’s Degree program.
The University of Alaska at Fairbanks offers Interdisciplinary Masters and Doctoral Degrees. This interdisciplinary program provides flexibility to students with well-defined goals who do not fit into one of the established majors offered by the university. For example, a student could design a doctoral program focusing on political science and wilderness management.
One of the specialized interdisciplinary degree programs offered at the Masters and Doctoral level is the new Regional Resilience and Adaptation program. Its training integrates several fields in the natural and social sciences to train students for careers in academia, govenment, and management to address issues of regional sustainability in an integrated systems framework.
