Department Website

The Northern studies program is an interdisciplinary program for the study of problems and policy issues specific to the North. Topics covered include the environmental politics and policies of Northern regions, the well-being of indigenous populations, the psychology of life on Northern frontiers, and the history of the North. Students can benefit from the expertise and research of UAF faculty, the rich Alaska and circumpolar collections of the UAF library and museum, and by being surrounded by the North itself.
