The University of Alabama in Huntsville is one of the nation's premier research universities, offering a challenging hands-on curriculum that ensures our graduates are prepared to become tomorrow's leaders.


goWhy GO to UAH? Our beautiful 432-acre campus is in the heart of Huntsville, Alabama. Also known as the Rocket City, Huntsville has all the perks of nearby big cities like Nashville and Atlanta but with less traffic and a lower cost of living. Not to mention, we enjoy a mild climate perfect for year-round outdoor activities and entertainment. And right across the street from campus are a number of major federal and industry employers like Redstone Arsenal, NASA, and Cummings Research Park. So it's no wonder Huntsville was recently ranked in the top ten of Money Magazine's list of "Where the jobs are," giving our graduates an unparalleled competitive edge when starting their careers!


learnWhat will you LEARN at UAH? Everything you'll need to know! Our nine colleges – Arts, Humanities, & Social Sciences; Engineering; Nursing; Science; Business Administration; Education; Honors; Graduate Studies; and Professional & Continuing Studies – offer over 110 areas of study. And as a Tier 1 national university, we have more than a dozen research centers, as well as numerous labs and facilities, to allow our students to get hands-on experience in the field of their choosing.
