Education

At SUNY, we are reinventing the role of public higher education in America.

With 64 campuses and over 7,000 academic programs, our reach extends far beyond classroom walls. With program offerings at the associate, bachelor's, master's, doctoral and certificate levels in subjects from accounting to zoology, every student can find and follow their unique passion at SUNY.

We believe higher education is not just for the fortunate; we know it is a necessity in today’s changing economy. At SUNY, we provide an outstanding, affordable education taught by world-renowned scholars who are also talented practitioners who excel in their chosen fields.

We also know that education is a lifelong process that starts not when a student reaches college, but in childhood, continuing through an entire lifetime. We work to foster lifelong learning and bridge the gaps that impede success along the way. To that end, SUNY’s leaders are developing an inclusive and seamless education pipeline to fuel the economic revitalization of New York State. As the nation’s largest comprehensive system of public higher education, SUNY is coordinating multiple components that, when knitted together, create a network of activity more powerful than any action of individual parts on their own. Every type of student, in every stage of life, with every kind of passion will find a place at SUNY.
