Departmental and School Honors

At UAB, many of our schools and departments offer honors tracks within individual majors and courses of study.   These tracks are generally open to upperclassmen that have shown academic promise, commitment to their field of study, and a proven desire for an enhanced educational experience.  These more discipline specific honors programs strive to meet the unique interests of individual students later in their undergraduate education rather than limiting all honors opportunities to entering freshman as one might find at other institutions.  Many of these departmental and school-level honors tracks work synergistically with the Honors College signature programs and add additional opportunities for students to craft their own individualized set of enhanced academic experiences.
