The College of Arts and Sciences is a diverse community of exceptional scholars working together toward the common goal of excellence in the pursuit of knowledge, both for its own sake and in service to society.
The College is the University’s largest academic unit and provides the liberal arts foundation for a UAlbany education. In our programs, students explore big ideas and timely, important problems; unleash their creativity and develop their aesthetic sensibility; investigate and analyze the natural world; and develop the flexible intellect required to be engaged local and global citizens.
Graduate students Claire Muro and Kyle Doty invent new ways for forensic scientists to solve crimes. Current methods for examining fluids found at crime scenes result in the destruction of evidence. But Claire and Kyle, under the supervision of Professor Igor Lednev, are helping to change that. They recently received awards for their work on nondestructive forensic methods, Muro for differentiating between five main body fluids and Doty for distinguishing human blood and that of ten animal species.
