University of Montevallo

montevallo


Students from around the world have studied at the University of Montevallo since its founding in 1896. The University began as Alabama's women's school with twelve students and a vision for the future. Today, the University enrolls more than 3,200 men and women within the four colleges of Arts & Sciences, Business, Education, and Fine Arts. Still small enough to provide each student with the benefits of one-on-one relationships with faculty, Montevallo is also large enough to offer a diverse academic cirriculum.

Montevallo offers a wide range of programs within the liberal arts, preparing students through a core curriculum designed to develop critical thinking skills. Students benefit regardless of the careers or vocations they choose to pursue. Emphasized are analytical skills such as those used in Foundations of Writing, a course within the general education requirement for all students.

Located south of Birmingham in the town of Montevallo, the University offers a friendly collegiate community that is accessible to students. The 160-acre campus with its grassy quadrants and massive oaks, includes 45 buildings, many of which are listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and brick sidewalks and streets that have become recognizable symbols of the University.
