If you have a passion for the outdoors and the environment and want to learn in the field as much as the classroom, APU is the place for you. It's one of the best colleges in Alaska for integrating your academic and extracurricular interests; top majors include Sustainability Studies, Outdoor Studies, Marine Biology, Environmental Science, and Earth Science. With a special commitment to serve Alaska's Native peoples, APU also has a major in Alaska Native Governance. And of course APU boasts a well-stocked outdoor center, through which you can rent equipment or sign up for trips to go sea kayaking, ice climbing, skiing, or backpacking in the Northern wilderness. Even the dining hall and student center reflect a sense of environmental consciousness through their emphasis on local and organic foods.
