University of South Alabama - Master's Degree
The history of the University of South Alabama can be traced back to the early 1960s when Mobile’s civic leaders saw the need to improve access to higher education in southwest Alabama and began to formulate plans for a four-year, degree-granting institution. The University of South Alabama was officially established on May 3, 1963 and classes began a year later in June. From the get go the University saw rapid increase in enrollment, starting out with just 276 but rising to 928 in the next semester.
Over the years the University continued to introduce new programs and attract more students, while expanding its own facilities and footprint. From the very beginning the University was adamant about establishing a medical school; and this came to fruition in 1973. USA’s focus on health education was later complemented by the College of Nursing and the Pat Capps Covey College of Allied Health Professions. As a result the University of South Alabama today, encompasses a comprehensive health system composed of two hospitals — USA Medical Center and USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital — along with the USA Mitchell Cancer Institute and the USA Physicians Group. It also fields 17 Division I sports teams, including baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, volleyball and tennis.
