Discover UAB

The University of Alabama at Birmingham is a world-recognized, research-intensive institution, and we pursue the frontiers of education, research and health care within a bold, collaborative culture that strives to be first, best and one-of-a-kind.

Our story is one of remarkable growth in size, quality, reputation and impact. From humble beginnings as an extension center, UAB — which became an autonomous campus in 1969 — has grown to offer 137 degree programs in Arts & Sciences, Business, Dentistry, Education, Engineering, Health Professions, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry and Public Health.

We have helped transform Birmingham into a nexus of medicine, business, research and development with a thriving arts and cultural scene, and our 21st century campus channels all the energies and opportunities of its metropolitan home.
