Academics

In today's evolving world, you need more than the tools of a trade or knowledge that comes from a book. You need a broad view of the world—the ability to adapt, to accept new ideas, and to embrace, even lead, change.

At UAlbany, you'll find the resources and experiences you need to prepare for an unpredictable future. At both the graduate and undergraduate levels, your faculty mentors will lead the way—they're partners with industry and published authors themselves, and know from experience what it takes to succeed. And you'll study and learn with a diverse group of students from around the globe—enriching your experience and opening you up to a world of new ideas.

Our wide array of academic choices includes 56 undergraduate majors and 120-plus graduate programs, several of which are ranked near the top in the nation. Our School of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, for example, ranks at the very top in the world, while the schools of Criminal Justice and Social Welfare appear regularly in national top-10 lists.

Whether you're interested in psychology or biology, our diverse academic offerings will teach you new ways to think about your subject and the world.
