A gold UAB sign on a brick wall. English department alumni have gone on to careers as writers, teachers, doctors, and lawyers in Birmingham and across the country. Two of them have recently been honored for their achievements by the College of Arts & Sciences: Joey Kennedy, Pulitzer prize-winning columnist for the Birmingham News, in 2012; and Professor Scott Herring of the University of Indiana in 2013. We invite all of our alumni to remain in contact with the Department and our students.

We would like you to share your story with us, with our students, and the world. Do you want to become involved in the department? We welcome your ideas and participation. Or perhaps you would like to know how to donate to the department and help support the mission of the department. You can contact us through email or phone, or tell us about what you've been doing through this website.
