SUNY SB Description

Stony Brook University is a nationally recognized public institution of higher education. Located in the quaint town of Stony Brook, New York, students have the opportunity to be educated by a truly stellar faculty dedicated to teaching tomorrow’s leaders.

At Stony Brook, degrees come in all shapes and sizes, from bachelor’s to doctorate degrees. Students enjoy a long list of undergraduate programs, which includes nearly every traditional concentration.

Master’s degrees are offered in concentrations from Theatre Art and Women Studies, to Marine Science and Oral Biology.

Surprisingly, the doctoral programs offered rival the amount of master’s programs. Students can earn a doctorate degree in fields such as

*Anthropological Science

Stony Brook is proud of its productive research teams in various fields, and reminds graduate applicants that only ambitious, determined students will make the cut.

Students are encouraged to participate in life outside the classroom, whether that be on or off campus. Student organizations, performing and fine arts opportunities, athletic teams, student government, and much more supply a healthy outlet to overworked students.

Because Stony Brook is committed to fostering the brightest students, the university understands how important it is for students who are struggling to receive the help they need. Student services, such as academic and research workshops, individual tutoring, a health clinic, career services, academic counseling, financial aid assistance, and counseling all help relieve stress for a struggling student.
