The University at Albany knows greatness. At UAlbany we give you the tools to unleash your individual potential in a community that believes in the change each person can make in this world. Since its founding in 1844, UAlbany has fostered within its students a single-minded purpose: to author their own success, doing the things that matter.

Choose from over 50 undergraduate majors and more than 150 graduate programs that prepare you to succeed in a wide range of fields. In every area of study, you’ll be instructed by faculty who are world-class scholars and teachers ─ many actively engaged in life-enhancing research that contributes profoundly to the public good.

UAlbany prepares you to pursue careers in a wide range of professions and enter top graduate, law or medical schools. You’ll have access to internships and career preparation in Fortune 500 businesses and in dozens of fields, plus early assurance options with Albany Medical Center and a unique partnership with Albany Law School. Recent additions to our academic offerings include some of the most in-demand programs today, such as computer engineering, homeland security, emergency preparedness, digital forensics, financial market regulation and public health.

The excellence of a UAlbany education is recognized by many independent sources. UAlbany is ranked among the top universities in Forbes’ “America’s Best Public Colleges,” and U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks many of our graduate programs among the top 50 in the United States, including clinical psychology, criminal justice, library and information studies, public affairs, public health, sociology and social work.
