1.0 Graduate Programs at the University of Alaska Anchorage

The University of Alaska Anchorage is a Master's I University, under the revised
Carnegie Classification:
       These institutions typically offer a wide range of baccalaureate programs, and they are committed
       to graduate education through the master's degree. During the period studied, they awarded 40 or
       more master's degrees per year across three or more disciplines.

UAA has exceeded this criteria since at least 1987 where, in that year, it produced 120
master’s degrees. In 2002-2003 it produced nearly twice that number. UAA currently
offers no doctoral programs.

The University of Alaska Anchorage currently supports the following 28 graduate

                                                  4
The following programs are presently undergoing revision:
       Master in Business Administration
       Master of Science, Clinical Psychology

1.1 Graduate Certificate Programs
UAA also offers two Graduate Certificate Programs,
       Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Certificate
       Family Nurse Practitioner Certificate

New graduate certificate programs are presently being considered in gerontology,
professional writing, and nursing education.

1.2 Cooperative Graduate Programs

UAA also offers graduate degree programs through cooperative arrangements with other
Universities:

       Biological Sciences, Doctoral Program, with the University of Alaska Fairbanks
       Computer Science, Master of Science, with the University of Alaska Fairbanks
       Nursing Science, Doctoral Program, with the Oregon Health and Sciences University
       Education, Ed.D., currently being negotiated with the University of Nevada Las Vegas
       Speech Pathology, presently being negotiated with East Carolina University, and with the
                University of Northern Colorado.
       Clinical Psychology, Joint Ph.D. program currently being negotiated with the University of Alaska
                Fairbanks

1.3 Exchange Programs

UAA participates in the Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho Biomedical
Program (WWAMI ), a cooperative agreement with the University of Washinton .
Support of WWAMI by the State of Alaska allows ten qualified Alaska residents
admission to the University of Washington School of Medicine each year. Students apply
to the University of Washington School of Medicine; upon admission, they complete
their first year of medical school at the University of Alaska Anchorage. The first year of
training involves basic sciences and an introduction to clinical medicine.

1.4 Comparison of Number of Graduate Programs with Peer Institutions

The average number of master’s programs for UAA’s peer group is 32; 9 of the 13 peer
institutions also have doctoral programs. Thus, in both cases, UAA falls below the
average in terms of peer numbers. In terms of its peers it is ranked 8th out of 13.

2.0 Types and Definitions of Degrees Offered at UAA
The majority of UAA’s master’s programs offer professional degrees through the
Colleges of Education, Health and Social Work, Business and Public Policy, and the
School of Engineering. This is true even for graduate programs in the College of Arts and
Sciences, which offers four graduate programs. The Master’s in Anthropology provides
qualified professionals for the National Park Service. In many regards, the MFA degree
in Creative Writing can also be counted as a professional degree (see below). The
Master’s in Clinical Psychology is certainly a professional degree. Consequently, the
only true academic graduate degrees at UAA are offered through English and Biology.

The types of degrees with their abbreviations offered at UAA are:

       Master of Science (MS) (MS in…)
       Master of Arts (MA)
       Master of Fine Arts (MFA)
       Master of Business Administration (MBA)
       Master of Public Administration (MPA)
       Master in Civil Engineering (MCE)
       Master of Public Health (MPH)
       Master of Social Work (MSW)
       Master of Education (MEd.)
       Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT)

A professional degree educates for a specific set of skills needed to practice a particular
profession. The professional master's degree may be in education, business, engineering,
or some other area of professional activity. It will prepare a student for a career in a
particular area or will help advance an existing career. Master’s level degrees in the fine
arts, such as the Master of Music or the Master of Fine Arts are also considered
professional degrees since they train a student for performance, craft, or skill, and, in


                                                 6
most cases are counted as a terminal degree. This is due to the fact that they often have
requirements beyond typical master’s level degrees. They are sometimes considered a
professional degree

The most common professional degrees at the doctoral level are the M.D. for medical
practice or the J.D. for law. These degrees are highly specialized, and require longer
preparation than Master’s level degrees but, in some cases, shorter preparation time than
research doctoral degrees. Although it is sometimes difficult to typecast professional
degrees, they often involve some type of internship or fieldwork, and at the doctoral
level, such degrees may require several years of internship—as exemplified by the M.D.

The academic graduate degree educates a student for research and scholarship relative to
a particular academic discipline. The goal of the degree is to master the methodology of
study or research as well as the content of the discipline. Professional degrees will also
often have research requirements, so they cannot be purely distinguished from academic
degrees in this respect. The academic master’s level provides experience and competence
in such matters, and the doctorate recognized accomplishment. Academic master’s degree
are generally considered a step toward a doctorate degree but, depending on ambitions,
may serve as a means of career enhancement. The academic degree at the master’s level
usually takes 1 or 2 years of study, and involves writing a thesis, with oral defense, and/
or taking a comprehensive examination. The research doctorate involves a dissertation
with oral defense. (Based on: Graduate School and You: A Guide for Prospective Graduate Students -
Published by: Council of Graduate Schools, 1999.)

It is thought that the principal difference between professional and academic degrees is
that academic degrees are teaching students how to advance the knowledge relevant to
that particular discipline, while professional degrees apply knowledge to the practice of
the respective profession. However, the line between professional and academic degrees
can be blurred, since many professional degrees involve a serious research component,
and doctoral degrees related to professions are primarily research degrees.

There has been in recent years a proliferation of types of master’s degrees in the
professions. In 1985 there were 667 master’s degree titles and 639 abbreviations (MA,
MS, MCE, etc.) listed by the Peterson’s Guides to Graduate Study; today there are 893
master’s degree titles, and 1,208 master’s degree abbreviations. (source=Judith Glazer-

3.0 Trend in Graduate Degrees Awarded at UAA and National
Comparisons
Master’s degrees are offered in a large variety of fields and subfields by more than 1,500
colleges and universities nation wide. According to NCES data, of the 1.2 million degrees
offered by American colleges and universities in 2001, 468,476 were master’s. The
percentage of master’s degrees has increased by 39% since 1993, compared to a 14%
increase in bachelor’s and doctoral degrees. Of 14.8 million students enrolled in higher
education, 1.8 million are matriculated for graduate degrees. Master’s students make up
1.44 million of this figure. NCES projections for Master's degrees to 2012-13 is an
increase of 19 percent overall, 17 percent for men, and 20 percent for women.

At the master's degree level, the largest fields were education (129,000) and business
(116,000). The largest fields at the doctor's degree level were education (6,700),
engineering (5,600), psychology (4,700), and biological/life sciences (4,600).

The highest number of subfields at the master’s level is in education at 56, followed by
the health professions at 40, business at 31, and 25 in the life sciences. The rapid
proliferation of subfields shows a trend toward more and more toward interdisciplinarity.


                                                 8
The10 emerging fields at the master’s level, according to the National research Council
is: biotechnology, systems biology, nanoscience/ nanotechnology, information science,
science and technology studies, film studies, feminist, gender and sexuality studies, and
race, ethnicity, and post-colonial studies.

The average age of a Master’s student is 32.6 years, and the majority are married. Most
likely they are in the process of changing careers or seeking more credentials to improve
job possibilities. 65.1% of master’s students are enrolled part-time. The majority of
master’s students attend MBA programs.

By and large the Nursing and Health fields garner the highest employment rates for
master’s students, with business a somewhat distant second, and social work nearly tied.

Graduate Degree production at UAA has grown 69% over the last 15 years, with a low
of 88 in 1988-89 and a peak of 263 in 1998-99. This is comparable to national trends.
NCES shows a 68% growth in master’s degrees since 1988 (Table and Figure below).
Although degree production at UAA has been progressive, it is somewhat erratic, nearly
sinusoidal. It dropped by 40% from a peak in 1998-99 to 1993 levels in 2001-02, but
rebounded with a 28% increase in the following year, 2002-2003.

5.0 Graduation Requirements



5.1 General University Requirements for Graduate Students

GRADUATE GENERAL UNIVERSITY REQUIREMENTS
General university requirements for all graduate degrees are as
follows:
1. A Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 3.00 (B) must be earned
in courses identified in the Official Graduate Studies Plan.
2. Only 400- and 600-level courses approved by the graduate
student’s Graduate Advisor, Dean or designee, and Graduate
Studies Committee, may be counted toward graduate program
requirements. Graduate Students enrolled in 400-level courses
which they intend to apply to their graduate program will be
expected to complete additional course work requirements.
3. In 400-level courses, a minimum grade of “B” is required for the
course to count toward the program requirements.
4. Courses at the 500-level are for professional development and
are not applicable toward any degree.
5. In 600-level courses, a grade of “C” is minimally acceptable,
provided the student maintains a cumulative GPA of 3.00 (B) in
all courses applicable to the graduate program. At least 21
credits must be taken at the graduate level (600) for any master’s
degree, including thesis and research credits. For performance
comparison only, in 600-level courses a grade of “P” (Pass) is
equivalent to a B or higher, but does not enter into the GPA
calculation.
6. Up to 9 semester credits not used toward any other degree or
certificate may be transferred to UAA from an accredited
institution and counted toward a degree or certificate. Quarter
credits will be converted to semester credits by multiplying
quarter credits by two-thirds. Acceptance of transfer credit
toward program requirements is at the discretion of the
individual program.
7. Individual program Deans may allow credit earned at other
universities in the Statewide system (i.e. University of Alaska
Fairbanks and University of Alaska Southeast), excluding thesis
credit and credit used toward another degree or certificate, to be
transferred to UAA, as long as at least nine credits applicable to
the student’s program are earned at UAA after acceptance into
the program.
8. Courses taken by correspondence, credit by examination, or


                                          82
graded Credit/No Credit (CR/NC) do not count toward
graduate program requirements. They may, however, be used to
satisfy prerequisites or to establish competency in a subject, thus
allowing the advisor or committee to waive certain courses in an
established program, as long as the total credits in the program
remain the same.
9. If the requirements for a master’s degree as specified in the
entry-level catalog are not met within 7 years of formal
acceptance into the program, that program will expire and the
student must reapply for admission and meet the requirements
in effect at the time of formal acceptance.
10. All credits counted toward the degree or certificate, including
transfer credits, must be earned within the consecutive sevenyear
period prior to graduation.
11. Students are expected to be continuously registered throughout
their graduate program (see Continuous Registration).


UNIVERSITY REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATE DEGREES
In addition to the Graduate General University Requirements, all
graduate students must meet the following requirements:
1. The students must complete at least 30 approved semester
credits beyond the baccalaureate degree. At least 24 credits in
every graduate degree must consist of courses other than thesis
and/or a research project.
2. The student must complete all requirements established by the
program and must pass a written or oral comprehensive
examination, or thesis/project defense.
3. When an oral comprehensive examination and/or thesis defense
is required, the student may select an outside reviewer approved
by the Dean or designee of the program to participate in the oral
comprehensive examination to assure that the examination or
defense is fair and appropriate. The outside reviewer is a faculty
member from another department in the university or other
qualified individual in the area in which the student is seeking
their degree.
4. All theses must meet general UAA requirements for format as
determined by the UAA Consortium Library.



5.2 Graduation Requirements By Program

Explanation of Differences Among Thesis, Project, Case Study, and Portfolio




                                           83
Thesis: a research product comparable to a monograph; a cogent study which employs the
methodology of the discipline to a content problem within that discipline; in the fine arts,
the thesis is a combination of the production of an aesthetic artifact (story, musical piece,
etc.), in combination with its theoretical analysis. Theses are usually accompanied by oral
defenses.

Portfolio: A collection of materials meant to demonstrate proficiency in areas relevant to
the degree. Portfolios are usually presented without defense.

Project: an application of the discipline’s content and methodology to the solution of a
particular problem. Projects may or may not require oral defense.

Case Study: similar to a project.

5.3 Library Standards for Thesis Submission

Format Requirements
      Paper must be good quality, 20-pound, white typing paper and measure 8-1/2
      inches by 11 inches. Easy-erase types of paper will not be accepted.

Printing
        Theses should be typewritten or printed on one side of the paper only. The print
        should be an even shade throughout the document, and lines must be double-
        spaced. Computers, word processors, or typewriters may be used, as may any
        simple, non-script typeface in either 10-pitch or 12-pitch. Any departure from a
        simple, non-script typeface will not be accepted unless its use is functional to the
        project and has received my prior approval. Laser printers are recommended.

Margins


                                                 88
       Your thesis will be bound on the left margin. Both it and the top margin must
       measure 1-1/2 inches. The right and bottom margins must measure 1 inch. The
       entire text, including page numbers, figures, tables, other illustrative matter, and
       appendices, should conform to these margin specifications. The library has all
       theses bound, so it is imperative margins be exact. A margin template is included
       in this guideline. Please note that the margin template does not show up in the
       web version of these guidelines.

       Only 2-1/2 inches or less can be bound into one volume. If your thesis is
       extremely thick due to length or thickness of paper, please contact Ms Treitline
       for special instructions on formatting for two volumes.

Illustrative Matter
         Follow the specifications for producing and mounting illustrative matter in the
         style manual recommended by your program or thesis committee. Be sure that all
         illustrative matter complies with the minimum margin specifications given above.
         If photographs and/or maps are used, submit two sets of original prints or color
         photocopies.

Title Page and Signature Page
        This guideline contains samples showing how title and signature pages should be
        formatted. These formats have been approved by UAA's Vice Chancellor for
        Academic Affairs and the Academic Affairs Board.

Abstract
       Each thesis must include an abstract that gives a succinct account of the work and
       does not exceed 150 words. The abstract should be double-spaced and typed on
       one side of the paper only. It should contain:

                  1.   statement of the problem
                  2.   procedure or methods
                  3.   results
                  4.   conclusions



       The abstract will appear as you have written it in UMI's quarterly publication,
       Masters Abstracts International. This bibliographic information will also be made
       available to various computer searching systems.It should contain:

Arrangement and Pagination of Contents
      The contents of your thesis should be arranged in the sequence listed below.
      Number pages sequentially as indicated, and conform to margin specifications.
      All pages (except those noted below) should be numbered so that they do not
      become disordered during copying or microfilming. If you are writing your thesis
      with the prospect of having it formally published and need to lay it out differently,
      please contact Ms. Treitline.
