Why UAB?

Because from the very beginning, UAB has been doing its own thing – in its own strong, exciting and very forward-thinking way. Because it’s the kind of university that isn’t satisfied with excellence in just one area, offering opportunities for achievement across all disciplines – and cool places to study, work and live. And because best of all, UAB students are not like everyone else. Just like you. So maybe there's no question at all.

  • Linaa Rohman

    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.
