Degree Programs Offered
The UAS Humanities Department offers degree and certificate programs that link academic study to the multicultural community and the natural environment. Programs in literature and the environment, northwest coast Native art, and theatre take optimum advantage of the local resources. For active students, the outdoor leadership certificate program offers many opportunities for students to interact with the environment. For those who like to travel, the department offers a minor in Spanish as well as opportunities for overseas study and internships.

In addition, a degree in the humanities prepares students for graduate programs in education, law, government, management, and public administration.
