We are dedicated to the belief that the critical study of the past is foundational to a sound liberal arts education.  Understanding our human past makes us better citizens as it gives us the tools to more effectively confront the issues facing the world today. Here at UB, we take immense pride in the instruction of undergraduates, in the preparation of graduate students as future historians, and in the original research produced by our renowned faculty. These scholars enjoy an international reputation for the quality of their work, as evidenced by numerous publications, a wide array of honors including book and article prizes, as well as national and international fellowships.
