With a student body of nearly 8,000 students, the State University of New York at Oswego is large enough to offer more than 110 programs of study, yet small enough for students to form quality relationships with each other as well as with the university’s distinguished faculty. The college is part of the prestigious SUNY system, one of the largest public higher education systems worldwide. Located on the shores of scenic Lake Ontario, Oswego is just 45 minutes north of the city of Syracuse, and about 5 hours from New York City, Toronto, and Philadelphia. Consistently ranked as one of the Best Value Colleges in the Northeastern United States, students at SUNY Oswego pursue bright futures through renowned programs in business, science, the arts, and more — and benefit from innovative interdisciplinary programs that cross traditional boundaries. From accounting to zoology, SUNY Oswego offers an impressive variety of different academic programs within four distinct schools; The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, The School of Communications, Media and the Arts; The School of Education and The School of Business. The School of Education is nationally accredited (NCATE), the School of Business is AACSB accredited, and the Chemistry program is ACS certified
