About Stony Brook University
Stony Brook University is one of America’s most dynamic public universities, a center of academic excellence and an internationally recognized research institution that is changing the world. After less than 60 years of existence, it’s ranked among the top 100 universities in the nation and the top 40 public universities.
Stony Brook University offers more than 200 undergraduate programs, more than 100 master’s programs and more than 40 doctoral programs. Innovative programs include a combined-degree fast-track MBA program and the award-winning Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (URECA) program, which involves undergraduates in research in nearly every discipline and has produced Beckman, Goldwater, Marshall and Truman scholars. Students in all disciplines have the opportunity to enrich their education by pursuing their academic interests in an overseas location while still earning credits toward their bachelor’s degree.
We’ve grown from a collection of geodesic domes at Planting Fields in Oyster Bay, N.Y., to our main 1,040-acre campus in Stony Brook, N.Y. — a powerful incubator of teaching and research innovation as well as a driving engine for the Long Island economy — with satellite locations in Southampton, Manhattan and South Korea.
