About the College

Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences. Our distinctive combination of strong academic programs, outstanding teaching, and a diverse student body nestled in the historic and vibrant city of Birmingham make the College a unique destination for those seeking excellence in education, research, and entrepreneurship.

Our 19 departments—home to over 300 faculty and more than 40 baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral degrees—make us the largest academic entity in the UAB academic enterprise. We are home to research centers, community outreach programs, and interdisciplinary cooperation.

Our goal is clear: to ensure that each of our students leaves UAB with the knowledge and tools to succeed in an expanding and increasingly complex global future.

Working together—our students and faculty, our research staff and community partners—we will provide our students and scholars the tools and resources they will need to find their place in the world.
