The Graduate School at Stony Brook: 

Where Excellence Meets Opportunity

Welcome to The Graduate School at Stony Brook University! Whether you are already part of our academic family or exploring the possibility of joining us, I invite you to explore our website to understand the pivotal role The Graduate School plays in the academic mission of our University.

Graduate education is an important investment in your future, and I believe that our academic community is just the right place for you. This is an exciting time for graduate education at Stony Brook. We currently offer graduate programs in forty-eight fields across the arts and sciences, engineering, business, journalism, health and medicine, as well as the Graduate Arts Campus in Southampton. As a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities and with our partnerships with Brookhaven National Laboratory and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, we offer a unique opportunity to become involved in cutting edge research and scholarship.

We know our greatest resource is our students, and we are tremendously proud of the work they do. The profiles below offer a glimpse into the many reasons why students choose Stony Brook and how their experience here has helped equip them for success. We hope you'll find their experience helpful as you contemplate your next steps.
