School of Graduate Studies
We take pride in the many graduate programs in place here and feel that we have a lot to offer in terms of research, coursework, and internships. Graduate study has long been seen as important to the continuing growth of Huntsville, North Alabama, and the Tennessee Valley. The masters programs at UAH first appeared in 1963 with doctoral programs following in 1971.
The vast majority of our faculty participate in graduate education and are full members of the graduate faculty. In many cases, these faculty are internationally recognized in their fields and are conducting ground breaking research. As a result, some 40 doctorates are granted each year to students in three of the five colleges. All five colleges grant some 300 master's degrees each year and additionally offer many certificate programs of interest to working professionals. The fact that most of our graduates stay in North Alabama contributes to Huntsville being placed on multiple lists of desirable places to live in the United States, but our contribution is not limited to North Alabama. Our students go on to make a difference in other states, the nation and the world.
