The Alaska Policy Frontiers course through UAA College of Business and Public Policy is offered online and can be taken by anyone anywhere in Alaska. It is a graduate course but I waivers are provided for undergraduates. No class will be more than four hours long in the new format. This class, taught by Willie Hensley, provides a panoramic picture of Alaska’s history, economics and cultures moving from the Russian Era to the American period and into the modern challenges in energy, mining, state fiscal policy, boarding schools, CDQ fisheries, Native land claims and pipeline operations. It is also approved for the Alaska history/culture requirement for new teachers so this gives them an option to take it during the school year and not have to give up time in our short summers!
