Academic Excellence

About Binghamton University

Binghamton University, a nationally distinguished State University of New York (SUNY) Center of Excellence, combines the atmosphere of a mid-sized, public institution with the resources of a very large research university. Binghamton University is one of the four university centers in SUNY, one of the largest systems of public higher education in the United States.

The University has a strong commitment to academic and research excellence, and many of our graduate programs have an excellent national reputation. Binghamton is large enough to provide an outstanding education for all of its students, yet small enough that students work alongside faculty. Our six academic schools and colleges strive to provide individual attention to students while also allowing viable access to innovative practical experiences and research projects
