Departments and Programs

The UAH College of Science advances cutting-edge research and offers first-rate degree programs thanks to our distinguished faculty and state-of-the-art facilities. The College of Science departments and UAH research centers span multiple disciplines including physics, chemistry, biology, atmospheric science, mathematical sciences, computer science and space science. Our location in Huntsville facilitates partnerships and collaborations with NASA, the US Army, NOAA, the HudsonAlpha Institute of Biotechnology, and the numerous high-tech companies located in Cummings Research Park, the second largest research park in the country.  UAH is considered a Tier 1 national university by U.S. News & World Report.  Barron’s Profiles in American Colleges list UAH as very competitive, the only public university in Alabama to earn this designation.  In 2011, UAH’s stature as a nationally prominent research university was confirmed by the Carnegie Foundation when that group rated the university as “very high” research activity institution.  UAH is one of only 73 public universities to earn this designation.

College of Science students enjoy the benefits of a research-intensive institution in a medium-sized university, including a 16:1 student-to-professor ratio and numerous research, leadership, and co-op/internship opportunities. The vibrant UAH campus, diverse student population, and academic and social organizations provide an enriching and cross-disciplinary student life experience. And UAH has been ranked as a top educational value by USA Today, Princeton Review, Consumers Digest, and Payscale.
