An Excellent Education. A Great Value. Named one of "America's Top Colleges" by Forbes, the University at Albany offers students the expansive opportunities of a comprehensive public research university with an environment designed to foster success.

Building a Strong Foundation. Outstanding faculty, an innovative curriculum, student-centered services, a rich diversity and exceptional facilities provide students with a strong foundation for academic and career success. More than two-thirds of graduates go on for advanced degrees, and acceptances to law and medical schools are above the national average.

Students choose from over 100 majors and minors in the arts and sciences, business and accounting, public policy, criminal justice, informatics, pre-law and pre-health. More than 1,000 study abroad programs help prepare students for the global economy and extensive internship opportunities offer real-world experience. Undergraduates actively participate in research projects and over 7,200 UAlbany students engage in community service activities.

UAlbany is one of only six colleges and universities in New York with AACSB dual accreditation in business administration and accounting. Our new state-of-the-art Business Building underscores our commitment to business, information security and entrepreneurship.

One Great City. One Great University. The UAlbany campus is bustling with extracurricular opportunities including over 200 clubs, honor societies and other campus organizations. UAlbany is a short drive from spectacular natural and recreational centers in New York, Massachusetts and Vermont. And with 20 colleges in the Capital Region, it's easy to see why Albany is "a great college town."
