College of Liberal Arts Support

Your gifts will support CLA’s areas of greatest opportunities toward success, including our facilities and resources, student scholarships and awards, and faculty and departments/programs.

Get to know us! Learn more about the 16 diverse departments and programs that make up the College of Liberal Arts.


In 1917, the campus was a single two-story frame building and had just six students. Today, the University of Alaska Fairbanks has grown to nearly 9,000 students seeking everything from associates degrees to Ph.D.s. The College of Liberal Arts is a collection of departments in the arts, humanities, languages and social sciences. With 18 departments and more than 40 degree programs, we are able to create a highly inter-disciplinary academic environment, greatly influenced by our location in Fairbanks. Whether in an art studio or research lab, the College of Liberal Arts is always naturally inspiring.
