Welcome! The College of Antarctic Studies offers skills in high demand in today's job market. Knowledge about Antarctica is essential in a seven continent world, and we provide the most complete education in this field a student can find. Our web-based courses now allow a student to be far away and still take part in lectures. Antarctic Studies students learn about Antarctica's physical environment, understand social, cultural and economic concepts from a spatial perspective, and can integrate information about relationships between environment and society. These skills, along with the 'seventh continent' geographic perspective one can only find here, open doors to employment in government agencies and private firms that deal with urban and regional planning, water management, environmental and market analysis, foreign service and education.

Interested students should take ANT 100 'Introduction to Antarctica' online to judge for themselves if pursual of an Antarctic Studies degree is right for them. Students must earn a grade of 2.0 (C) or better for course work to count, as per UANT policy. The same course cannot be used for credit in two different colleges. Credit will not be given toward the degree for a graduate and undergraduate section of the same course.

Antarctic Studies students are required to follow
one of the following courses of study, as offered by their chosen department of specialization:
