We offer more than 50 different degree programs, and most of the courses that make up the college’s general education program fall under arts and science.
The faculty of the School of Arts and Sciences provides excellence in learning opportunities for all students at State University of New York College at Plattsburgh through a core liberal arts education that develops students who can think critically, have mastered their discipline, can communicate effectively and are broadly educated.
Students may select a major field of study in the traditional disciplines of arts and sciences and in select professional and graduate programs.
We provide opportunities for students to extend their learning beyond the classroom through internship, research, and field opportunities. The faculty of the School of Arts and Sciences provide a supportive and encouraging learning environment for students.
