Academics at the University at Buffalo

More things to learn, more ways to learn

As a major public research university, UB is a place where students work side by side with renowned faculty, including National Medal of Science, Nobel, Pulitzer and other award winners.

And our students themselves achieve high levels of distinction, as Fulbright, Goldwater and Udall scholars, and National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellows. The secret to their success? At UB, our students are truly engaged with their studies, getting the kind of hands-on experiences that enlighten the intellect and enliven the learning process.

When it comes to learning opportunities, UB simply has more to offer. We have the widest range of academic programs of any public institution in New York or New England, including the choice of creating an individualized course of study through special and joint major programs.

UB’s support for learning is superior. Whether you need academic or career planning advice, or even tutoring, we’re ready to help you accomplish whatever you set your mind to. Though we’re a large and comprehensive university, UB is really made up of smaller, highly supportive learning communities. While some of these communities form more organically, UB also offers a number of formal programs that allow students to be engaged with their studies in a truly collaborative learning environment. These communities give students the chance to make connections and share similar academic interests with other students, faculty and staff. Finally, our outstanding libraries, computing facilities and courses that integrate computer learning are recognized throughout academia, and our extensive study abroad and internship programs offer even more exciting ways to learn.
