UB's groundbreaking Professional Pathways program transforms the typical undergraduate student experience. When you transfer to UB, you’ll select a major from an extensive array of program options within our five Professional Pathways, or collections of academic majors within a career cluster that help ensure students:
- Law, Justice and Public Affairs
- Business and Entrepreneurship
- Communication and Design
- Psychology, Health and Human Services
- Cybersecurity, Gaming and Technology.
You will join a cohort of like-minded undergraduate students aligned with your career interests and receive dedicated career coaching, personal advising, experiential learning and hands-on professional opportunities. Not only will you have a schedule designed to help you graduate on time, but you can also get a serious head start on graduate school or a law degree. Since UB is the only university in the state that offers undergraduate, graduate and law degrees, you can plan to earn two degrees—and save both time and money in the process. Learn more about these accelerated programs as well as the exceptional experiences in the Helen P. Denit Honors Program.
