A hands-on learning approach
SUNY Cobleskill provides an innovative education that combines a hands-on approach to learning with a deep concern for the effects of our actions on the world around us. Here you will find two amazing schools in one dynamic college: a cutting-edge Agriculture and Natural Resources School and a modern Business and Liberal Arts and Sciences School. Together, our schools prepare you to graduate as an engaged citizen with the skills, knowledge, and experience to succeed in an ever-changing world.
Students learn by doing in the living laboratories of our scenic 902-acre campus. Our Center for Agriculture and Natural Resources houses state-of-the-art greenhouses, a cold-water fish hatchery, and green roofs. Elsewhere, students hone their skills in our histotechnology laboratory, television studio, newly renovated graphic arts labs, on-campus restaurant, contiguous farm, and agricultural engineering laboratory.
Real life, real learning
Success isn’t just about what you learn; it’s about how you learn. Students and faculty are leading research on diseases that affect industrial hemp production, developing a business brand through the creation and design of print and digital media collateral, and studying the interplay of conservation and development in Panama, among many other projects and experiences.
SUNY Cobleskill offers a high-quality education at affordable SUNY tuition rates. We have been ranked one of the top colleges for return on investment in New York State. The majority of our graduates get jobs in their fields, while others enter graduate degree programs at some of the nation’s most reputable institutions.
We are constantly exploring new ways to prepare you to lead in a rapidly changing world. We’ve recently debuted new degree programs in Applied Fermentation, Canine Training and Management, Cybersecurity, and Environmental Management. Each program was developed in conjunction with industry insight. From jobs in the global sustainability movement to working with veterans to contributing to the burgeoning food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries, these fields offer countless and thriving career opportunities.
