Start your career in fisheries today!
Distance delivered classes
Better yet, you can also earn a degree or certificate in fisheries from the comfort of your own home, via distance delivered classes. Not only does this allow you to take classes without moving, it also allows you to work in the fisheries field, wherever that may be, and get the education you need to advance in your job.
Although the Fisheries Technology Program is distance delivered, both the Certificate and AAS are listed as being "available by distance delivery to students within the state of Alaska" in the UAS Academic Catalog.
Jobs availability in the fisheries workforce is good. Right now there is a shortage of fisheries technicians and fisheries biologists in the State of Alaska, a trend predicted to continue for at least the next 10 years. This program can help you get the education you need to obtain one of the many jobs currently open in this field.
