Binghamton University has built a reputation as a world-class institution that combines a broadly interdisciplinary, international education with one of the most vibrant research programs in the nation. Binghamton is proud to be ranked among the elite public universities in the nation for challenging our students academically, not financially. The result is a unique, best-of-both-worlds college experience. Our academic culture rivals a first-rate private university-rigorous, collaborative and boldly innovative-while our campus culture exemplifies the best kind of public university experience: richly diverse students, active social life and deep engagement with the community. Our students, both undergraduate and graduate, work one-on-one with an exceptional faculty that includes Pulitzer Prize winners and groundbreaking scholars. They take advantage of special academic opportunities like combined degrees, foreign language study groups and an unparalleled international education program.
