Many students come to Binghamton already knowing their career aspirations. Our pre-professional programs in health, medicine, law and education lead to acceptance into some of the top professional schools in the nation.
Students are prepared for careers in medicine, dentistry, optometry, veterinary medicine, podiatry, nutrition, physical or occupational therapy and chiropractic medicine.
In addition, Binghamton's Early Assurance Program for early admission during the sophomore year into SUNY Upstate Medical University, Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, and the SUNY Optometry Joint Degree Program helps take the pressure off students pursuing these degrees.
Binghamton University consistently exceeds national acceptance rates to law school. This track provides outstanding preparation through rigorous academic coursework and discussion, strong advising, and many pre-law organizations and activities.
While not an undergraduate program, students who earn 62 credits and successfully complete the prerequisites are well prepared for admission to Binghamton University's new School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Pre-health/pre-pharmacy advisors provide guidance with appropriate course selection.
The education minor helps you develop a strong foundation so you can continue in education at the graduate level in our education program or anywhere else you choose.
Students who graduate from Binghamton with a major in English and a concentration in rhetoric go on to have successful careers in the field of communications. The major allows students to combine a passion for writing and spoken words with hands-on experience in internships that may include print and broadcast media.
The Psychology Department in Harpur College of Arts and Sciences offers a bachelor's degree in psychology, and provides students with a solid experimental background for further postgraduate study and training in all areas of psychology and related fields.

The College of Community and Public Affairs offers undergraduate coursework in human development, community organizations, leadership and advocacy, counseling and education, public/non-profit service, social justice, and immigration policies and services.
