Why study sciences at UAB?

UAB's strongest science programs fall into three key, in-demand areas of interest: public health, nursing and biotechnology. While all of our science programs are conducting extensive research, these fields are all committed to combat our communities’ hardest problems through research and education. "As a nursing student, you can easily walk to the nation’s largest and highest ranking academic medical centers.

  • In public health, you can specialize in anywhere from epidemiology to healthcare organization and policy.
  • In our brand-new $32-million, nursing facilities, you will have access to clinical experiences and anatomically accurate robots to practice procedures that you will apply to patients one day.
  • When you're ready to put your biotechnology to the test, you can pursue an internship at one of more than 550 biotech enterprises. Our biotechnology postgraduate employment rate is 95% or better.
