With proximity to New York State’s capital and state government, in the midst of New York State’s burgeoning Tech Valley, and with access to the intellectual resources that only a large public research institution can provide, the Department of Communication at the University at Albany is an exciting place to study for both undergraduate and graduate students.

If you’ve already chosen to study with us, we hope these pages provide you with useful information about our programs and help in making choices about your education.
