Be who you are and become who you want to be at Alabama State University. At ASU, you’ll receive a world-class education from faculty members who have the knowledge and dedication to help make your dreams a reality.
ASU has 9 academic units and nearly 50 undergraduate, graduate and continuing education programs, including our education degrees and certificates, well-known theatre program and new initiatives in forensic science and nanobiotechnology, to challenge you.
At ASU, we believe in the power of an education. For us, learning is a life-long process, and our dedication to offer the best education will continue throughout the life of the university. That’s why we offer high demand programs like health sciences and international business, why we continue to grow core programs like education and performing arts through new technology and new offerings and why we’re so proud of our master’s and doctoral programs. We also offer a small class size (student-to-faculty ratio is 18:1) because we believe in personal attention.
When we teach class, the world takes note---literally. Our faculty members are in the classroom, teaching and offering personal guidance to the leaders and educators of tomorrow. They’re also outside the classroom, working on a cure for childhood pneumonia and acting and directing. ASU’s faculty has the knowledge to deliver a world-class education---65% hold a Ph.D. or terminal degree in their field---and the passion and dedication to work with each student to discover their talents.
True to ASU’s legacy to educate and better the lives of others, faculty members and students continue to give back to the community through outreach efforts, like the Advancing Minority Entrepreneurship business plan competition, the Unwed Pregnancy Prevention Program and HIV/AIDS Awareness Division, coordinated through the Center for Leadership and Public Policy, and the Zelia Stephens Early Childhood Center and Four-Year Degrees for Head Start program, managed through the College of Education.
ASU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, National Association of Schools of Music, National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification, Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs and the Alabama State Department of Education.
