UB Curriculum

The UB Curriculum is UB's general education program, which insures that every student's undergradaute education includes a strong liberal arts component.

UB Seminar

The entryway to your UB education. Each student must enroll in a UB Seminar in his or her first semester at UB.  Freshmen and transfers with fewer than 45 credits completed choose a 3-credit course, and transfer student with at least 45 credits completed choose a 1-credit course.  Seminars allow first-semester students to engage with a faculty member in a small, discussion-based courses.


The building blocks of academic inquiry and lifelong learning. Each student must complete two writing courses, two science courses with one lab, a math course, and a US cultural diversity course. These can double-count as major courses.


A series of courses linked together by a broad topic of interest. Students get to choose from a variety of topics and courses to complete this liberal arts core.

Capstone (UBC 399)

The culmination of your UB Curriculum program. Students create ‘annotated’ e-portfolios, discussing and comparing all the courses which satisfy their UB Curriculum requirements
