Opening Doors to Graduate School

For students receiving a bachelor’s degree from SUNY Cobleskill the question soon arises: What comes next? Should I step immediately into the job market or try to get into graduate school for further work in my field?

Many may find their answer in the constantly growing number of graduate school agreements that SUNY Cobleskill has forged with universities both near and far. In fact, in the last year alone, we have concluded 19 such agreements.

The objective in all cases is to give our bachelor’s degree-holders in several disciplines an “open door to success;” that is, to provide them simplified, nearly seamless admission to first-class graduate programs in order to advance their knowledge and continue to prepare themselves for professional careers.

As an example, some of the participating schools for students seeking graduate study in Biotechnology are Georgetown University, Northeastern University, University of Buffalo, Drexel University, College of Saint Rose, Kansas State University, Sage Colleges and the University of Southern California.

Other recently added partners include Mercy College, University of West Virginia, Delaware Valley University and SUNY New Paltz. The areas of study available at these institutions is widely varied, ranging from early childhood education and mental health counseling, to agricultural business technology, food systems, business administration and computer science.

While lengthy, the listings of schools and subjects above are hardly exhaustive, with new partners now joining us regularly. In all cases the goal is clear: to give SUNY Cobleskill bachelor’s graduates a straight and accessible pathway to success in their chosen field through studies at any of a number of outstanding learning institutions.
