Alaska Studies are studies of the environment, indigenous and immigrant residents, and institutions of Alaska, with specific study of the social, economic, and political history of Alaska, and educational institutions and laws that affect the people of Alaska.
The Alaska Studies courses listed below meet the initial teacher certification requirements of AS 14.20.020(h) and 4 AAC 12.075(b). If a course offered by an Alaska college or university does not appear on this list, it is not approved to satisfy these certification requirements. Courses are subject to availability and may be offered at branch campuses or by distance delivery (correspondence). Please contact the institution directly with questions about availability, content, or enrollment.
Courses taken to satisfy the Alaska Studies coursework requirement can also be used to satisfy the recency credit requirement for certification.
