Each year, Binghamton enrolls nearly 17,000 students—almost 3,300 are graduate students—in programs leading to bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. Students come from 115 countries and 53 U.S. states/territories.
The academic culture at Binghamton rivals a first-rate private university: rigorous, collaborative, and innovative. The campus culture exemplifies the best kind of public university experience: richly diverse students, active social life, and deep engagement with the community.

Programs and schools
Binghamton offers more than
60 master’s, 30 doctoral, and 50 accelerated (combined bachelor’s/master’s) degrees, plus 15 certificates and non-degree course work under six schools: College of Community and Public Affairs, Decker School of Nursing, Graduate School of Education, Harpur College of Arts and Sciences, School of Management and Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science. A School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is being established and is expected to matriculate its first class in fall 2017.

University faculty are top scholars and groundbreaking researchers; 93% hold the highest degree offered in their field. Among the many honors Binghamton professors have received are Fulbright, Ford, and Guggenheim fellowships; National Science Foundation and National Book awards; and grants from the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. departments of Energy, Defense, Commerce, and Education.

Advanced research is being conducted across every discipline and every school at Binghamton. This research leads to new insights, new technologies, and new jobs. From work developing biofilm technology to the study of human trafficking, Binghamton graduate students collaborate with faculty experts and thrive in a diverse community that promotes the vigorous exchange of innovative ideas.
The University’s Transdisciplinary
Areas of Excellence (TAEs) explore critical social, scientific, technological, economic, cultural, and policy issues aimed at developing solutions to today’s complex and consequential problems. Graduate students have the opportunity to work with faculty researchers in these TAEs, which focus inquiry and innovation in five distinct areas: citizenship, rights, and cultural belonging; health sciences; material and visual worlds; smart energy; and sustainable communities.
