When it comes down to it, you’re coming to college for an education.

Oh, there’s no denying that the culture and athletics and student life are great (and very important), but, in the end, you’re looking for a degree and a plan for the future. Conveniently, UAB happens to have all of those things – except for the plan – but we can help you build that yourself. We offer more than 115 areas of study, including a few that you can’t find anywhere else in the state, or even the region. And you definitely can’t find our top-notch, field-tested, nationally renowned, actually-really-nice-in-person faculty anywhere else in the state. Mostly because, well, they’re here.
