Through globally focused academic programs and a multicultural learning environment, UB seeks to prepare students for life and work in an interconnected, global society. Coursework at home and opportunities to study overseas enable students to acquire cross-cultural skills and a contextualized understanding of world affairs.
Area studies and language programs enable UB students to immerse themselves in the study of foreign languages and cultures.
These areas of study leverage the expertise of faculty members in the humanities, social sciences and professional programs to provide students with an education that is both comprehensive and in-depth.
UB offers more than 1,000 study abroad opportunities for undergraduate, graduate and professional students. A summer architecture program in Italy takes students to Rome, Florence and Venice, while a yearlong language program in Kobe, Japan, immerses participants in Japanese language and culture.
