University of Alaska Fairbanks Reviews

17 reviews
The academics at the Mathematics Department where I was admitted to at least attempts to maintain a standard. Despite this, the limited course offering inevitably causes issues. For instance since only three math graduate courses were offered in my first semester, I essentially had to take all three of them due a minimum credit requirement. Two of them were standard courses. But one of them proved to be disastrous since it delved into a subject - Relativity - that I had no (Physics) preparation for. Despite the professor's leniency I lost too much time in it that I could have spent in the other more relevant courses and my results suffered.

The only reason I am giving 2 stars instead of 1 is because despite all my negative experiences I was blessed to meet some exceptional professors at the Mathematics Department. Studying under them taught me a lot and they made the academic situation somewhat bearable. They are a remnant of when UAF was a fairly decent school a few decades back.

The courses I was interested in at this school are very limited. Being a computer science student, most of the interesting subjects had only one class on the subject. For example, there's the one introductory AI class, and the two classes on computer graphics. Also, keep in mind that if you come here for computer science, you need to be doing lots of self-guided work outside the classroom. The classes teach the needed basics, but you could go through three years of the curriculum and never know how to get a program out of an IDE. There is a masters program offered, but you will be in the same class alongside the students taking the basic class. You just need to do a presentation each week, I believe. About half of the teachers in the department seem cool and care, but the rest do not. The math teachers are good though.
My graduate level classes have brought together students from a wide variety of backgrounds, with stron academic abilities. The variety in interests resulted in a much more rounded educational experience.
