UAS is surrounded by the last great expanse of temperate rainforest left in North America and our programs are designed with that in mind. The Tongass National Forest is our living classroom. It is a place in which our students find solace, inspiration and opportunities to be challenged both academically and physically. Students can find the Mendenhall Glacier, the shores of the Inside Passage and stands of old growth forest all within three miles of campus.

UAS is dedicated to providing the best liberal arts education, because the liberal arts strengthen the skills and traits that employers and graduate programs covet, such as clear and effective writing, good communication and collaboration skills. These competencies are the foundation for a solid career in any sector of the workforce. At UAS we want to help you get your first job, but we also want to give you the tools to build a satisfying career.
