University at Buffalo

At the University at Buffalo, the classroom is just the beginning. Specialized academic communities - like the Academies and the University Honors College - take your education out of the classroom and into the real world. Our new general education program helps you customize your major through complementary thematic study, called 'clusters.' Extensive research and internship opportunities offer critical professional groundwork in disciplines from engineering to poetry.

UB students regularly bring home prominent awards like Udall, Fulbright and Goldwater scholarships. Our professors are internationally renowned scholars and educators who have been awarded some of the most distinguished honors in their fields. But above all, they're committed to the growth and success of their students.

A UB education is also a great value. A member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, UB is one of the nation's leading public research universities. In fall 2014, one of every four incoming freshmen was awarded a merit scholarship, for a total of $3.5 million. And, our Finish in 4 program will help you reach your academic goals as quickly and economically as possible.

Choose from more than 100 undergraduate degree programs, including nearly 30 combined degree programs, or design your own major. Our learning environment is truly global; on campus, you'll join one of the most international student bodies in the U.S., and have more than 1,000 SUNY study abroad programs from which to choose. And, with more than 200 student clubs, 20 Division I athletic teams, the great city of Buffalo around you and Canada a stone's throw away, you'll never sit around wishing you had something to do.
