A Community of Curious, Engaged Students

The challenging academic environment and close-knit community of the Honors College exemplifies UAB’s commitment to “knowledge that will change your world.” Our students pursue majors (often more than one!) in all undergraduate divisions, hold leadership positions across campus, and serve in the Birmingham community and around the world. In the last two years, 25 honors students have received nationally competitive fellowships in recognition of their academic excellence and commitment to research and service.

The Honors College includes five paths that have been carefully designed to meet the unique academic interests and needs of UAB honors students. Many students also pursue departmental honors programs or fast-track/fifth-year master’s programs.

With approximately 900 students, the UAB Honors College offers small class sizes, intensive academic advising, and endless opportunities for academic enrichment.
