Tabbed action bar from Eclipse in Android Studio?

In the course "Self Destructing Message App" in Android, one of the first steps is to create the project file with a 'tabbed action bar'. The teacher uses and demonstrates this using Eclipse. However I use Android Studio. Where is the corresponding feature and how can I implement it in my project now?

When creating a new project, on the page where you select the type of activity, select "Tabbed Activity". It should be the last one on the list. On the next page, there will be an option for "Navigation Style", under this select the option for "Action Bar Tabs(with ViewPager)". This will give you the same setup as tabbed action bar in eclipse.
