Biology and Marine Biology at UAS
The Biology and Marine Biology degree programs at the University of Alaska are delivered by top-notch faculty actively involved in a wide range of disciplines including marine ecology, marine mammalogy, phycology, comparative physiology, neurobiology, population genetics and conservation biology. They maintain active research programs that allow undergraduate students to participate in unique hands on learning opportunities.
The location of the university in the Tongass National Forest provides students with a natural laboratory that includes extensive marine habitat, rainforest, wetlands, and ice fields -- all within walking distance of the classrooms. A small student-to-professor ratio ensures a more personal approach to learning than is possible at larger universities.
