Curricular distinction at UB will encompass a new general education program, experiential learning, interprofessional education, and significant international experiences.

This curriculum is designed around four central concepts:
UB is committed to preparing our students to meet tomorrow’s challenges and be responsible citizens in an increasingly global and multicultural society. Through our distinctive curriculum, students gain deep domain knowledge, broadened understanding of their community and the world at large, appreciation for human and cultural diversity, confidence to navigate the world, and desire to be life-long learners.
Enhancements to UB’s curriculum continue to evolve and are being refined based on recommendations from the Curriculum and Assessment task force and related subcommittees. For more information, see the Curriculum and Assessment task force report.
