Discover stories behind UAB education

UAB’s dynamic living and learning environment inspires and nurtures achievement, social responsibility and enterprise. In this mecca of multiculturalism, a highly motivated student body examines, masters and expands traditional knowledge in the classroom, lab, field and communities they serve.

Students are drawn to the specialized courses and research opportunities of the UAB Honors College, which continues to produce Fulbright, Goldwater and Rhodes Scholars, and the Early Medical Professional Schools Acceptance Program, which guarantees admission to UAB’s schools of Medicine, Dentistry and Optometry. World-class programs include undergraduate degrees in neuroscience, public health, biomedical engineering and industrial distribution plus a rapidly growing number of online offerings.

In addition to faculty-mentored research, students also take part in active learning through service-learning projects in the community, study abroad and abundant co-ops, internships, teaching and clinical experiences.
