Graduate Studies

SUNY Oneonta is a mid-size, public, liberal arts college with a strong focus on graduate education. Earning a graduate degree often means balancing many competing demands on your time, energy and resources. We understand. That’s why personal attention is the unifying theme of our varied graduate degree programs. Our class sizes are small. Our professors are truly interested in getting to know you. Even our online programs are remarkable in the way you feel in touch. Academic programs are divided into five schools: the School of Arts and Humanities, the School of Economics and Business, the School of Education and Human Ecology, the School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences, and the School of Social Science. Nestled in the hills of Central New York, the college’s idyllic setting is ideal for study, adventure and self-discovery.
