Alaska Pacific University

Thinking about furthering your education and wonder how a graduate degree can help you achieve your personal and professional goals? At Alaska Pacific University we can help you answer those questions and more. Alaska Pacific is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in graduate studies and to the development of a community of learners. Small classes with an emphasis on a "teaching" graduate faculty provide for interaction among faculty and graduate students and enhance the students' ability to link theory to practice, as well as research to action.

We offer seven different graduate programs including:

To attend graduate school is a decision that requires some careful thought and shouldn't be made lightly. There are several important factors to consider when making this decision:

Do you love the field enough to obtain an advanced degree? Graduate school is demanding and intense. You will need to be very enthusiastic about your subject to keep up, so take some time to investigate the field before applying. Feel free to contact our faculty to find out more.

You should also determine whether or not you need an advanced degree to enter a particular profession or reach a certain level. For example, in professional fields such as psychology, an advanced degree is a must. For others, like teaching, a graduate degree can enhance your earning power and can influence how far and fast you will advance.

Consider your financial resources-are they enough to cover the cost of graduate school or would it be better to take some time to save money. Many graduate students cover all or a substantial amount of the cost with grants, fellowships, loans or assistantships. You can also defer the loans from your undergraduate work if you go to graduate school.

Going to graduate school full-time is more intensive and allows you to interact with your program colleagues at a closer level. Attending school part-time, however, does allow you the chance to work in the field, earn money and complete your degree during a longer time period.

Although there is no ideal profile for the successful graduate student, some of the qualities that will help you be productive include intelligence, initiative and self-discipline. At Alaska Pacific, graduate students should maintain at least a 3. 0 GPA. Good time management skills, being focused and persistent are equally important. Perhaps the most important quality is the ability to establish good working relationships with your fellow students, faculty and internship mentors. These are tools you will carry with you throughout your academic career, and in your life.
