Why UAB?

Because from the very beginning, we've been a place for dreamers and doers, artists and scientists, idealists and realists. This is a university without walls, where no one is worried about fitting in — just standing out. UAB is your launching pad for a 21st century career, with opportunities you won’t find anywhere else. Want to be in a place where something is always going on, while still experiencing a tight campus community? There’s no need to settle for A or B when you can have both at UAB.

    Since coming to UAB I’ve discovered my love for composition and music production. I’m very happy that UAB’s music technology degree marries the technical side of engineering and recording while still holding composition and theory in equal regard.
