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.

    Experiential learning is key in discovering what I want to do after I graduate – the start-up companies, student ventures and companies located here give me the opportunity to apply the skill set I learn through my classes into real-life applications.
