An Oswego Education

Academic Foundation

Oswego’s academic foundation is built around ensuring students gain a breadth of knowledge by focusing on arts and sciences, global awareness, and human diversity as well as a focus on fundamental skills such as writing, critical thinking and computer literacy—which is needed for lifelong success. 

Our supportive faculty help students form the knowledge and skills necessary to support their career and life goals. We give students many opportunities to participate in applied learning activities such as internships, research, and civic engagement.

Career Services

With the help of our many tools and resources, your career development begins in college and continues beyond graduation. Oswego's Career Services office offers more events and more resources than any other SUNY school. 


Education Abroad

Travel abroad is an educational experience that remains with you for a lifetime; a semester abroad allows you to live, study and immerse yourself in all that a country has to offer. SUNY Oswego offers you the world through study abroad programs that provide learning and living opportunities at more than 80 sites in 30 countries across the globe.


Experiential Learning

Go beyond the traditional classroom. With so many internships, co-ops and other experiential learning opportunities you can get real-world work experience as you learn.



Among the 360 full-time faculty at Oswego 85 are grant recipients for research from such agencies as the Sloan Foundation, the Fulbright Scholars Program and the National Science Foundation. The State University of New York has honored dozens of Oswego professors for excellence in teaching. Faculty strive for quality classroom instruction and individualized attention whenever possible.


Research and Scholarly Activities

Oswego provides opportunities for students to engage in hands-on, career-related experience, that oftentimes lead to publishable research or presentations.
