You want a graduate degree that can help take your career to the next level, but you also want financial peace of mind. The School of Graduate Studies at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) can give you both. 

We top the list among every other university in the state when it comes to return on investment, with our graduates going on to earn a greater average starting salary than many of their peers. That makes choosing to go here more than just a great investment in your education—it’s also a great investment in your future.

Our beautiful 432-acre campus is home to six colleges: Engineering, Education, Nursing, Science, Business Administration, and the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. Between them, we offer a broad selection of graduate programs ranging from master’s degrees in space science, cybersecurity, and public affairs to doctorates in biotechnology, aerospace systems engineering, and nursing practice.

As a tier-one research university, we also have more than a dozen research centers, enabling our students to get the kind of real-world, hands-on experience that employers value most. And once they graduate? Many choose to stay right here in the Rocket City, whose robust economy is anchored by such notable federal and industry employers as the Redstone Arsenal, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, and the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology.

It all adds up to a well-rounded, high-quality graduate education—one that will help you break free from the pack without breaking the bank.
