About University of West Alabama
Welcome to West Alabama's regional state university. As a comprehensive state university, we offer a broad range of academic programs leading to the associate, bachelor's and master's degrees, as well as support services to the business, government, and education communities. We also have students from throughout the United States and from many countries, creating a diverse and stimulating learning environment.
There are very few universities left that can offer quality academic programs in a very personal setting at a reasonable cost. Our average class size is about twenty-three students, and our students receive advisement and counseling directly from the faculty in their major areas. Furthermore, we offer a small town setting with a secure environment, free from many of the distractions of larger cities.
All of our academic colleges offer various forms of consulting and problem solving to diverse businesses and agencies within the region. Many of these programs provide our students with hands-on experience in the form of practica and internships, as well as providing valuable support to the community.
As UWA's president, I make it a priority to be visible on campus, and my door is always open to students. Indeed, at UWA, all employees pride themselves on placing students first.
Take a cyberspace tour of our campus and see what a beautiful and spacious campus we have! Even better, I invite you to personally visit our campus and meet our students, faculty, and staff. A UWA Ambassador will show you our campus and show you that Students Come First at UWA.
