University Centers and Doctoral Degree Granting Institutions
Undergraduate teaching, research, and advanced graduate and professional studies are all priorities at SUNY's four university centers. These campuses offer a number of programs and specializations leading to bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees. Undergraduate enrollments range from just fewer than 10,000 to over 16,000. (Albany, Binghamton, University at Buffalo, Stony Brook)
Bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees are also offered at SUNY's statutory colleges. These colleges, on the campuses of private universities, are publicly supported in part, and are governed cooperatively by SUNY trustees and the governing boards of the parent institutions. Undergraduate enrollments range from approximately 700 to over 3,000. (Ceramics at Alfred University, Agriculture & Life Sciences at Cornell University, Human Ecology at Cornell, Veterinary Medicine at Cornell (graduate studies only), Industrial & Labor Relations at Cornell)
The College of Environmental Science & Forestry, located in Syracuse, is a unique campus offering undergraduate and graduate work leading to degree opportunities through the doctorate. It is one of few colleges in the United States that focuses on natural resources and the environment. Undergraduate enrollment is just under 1,200 students.
The Health Science Center at Brooklyn, Health Science Center at Syracuse, and the College of Optometry (graduate studies only) are three institutions dedicated exclusively to health-related degree programs. Both Health Science Centers enroll fewer than 500 undergraduate students each.
