The Mission of The Graduate School
The Graduate School oversees graduate education across all colleges and departments at Binghamton University. The future of our University very much depends on our ability to continue recruiting superior graduate students and to give them the financial support they deserve.
Graduate students choose schools for a variety of reasons. The ones who choose Binghamton tell us they value our diverse campus community offering opportunities to meet people from all over the world and our open, interdisciplinary approach to academics. As one student put it, “I loved that anthropology [at Binghamton] allowed me to combine my interests in science, biology, medicine and disease with my interests in culture and history.”
Students value the opportunities Binghamton provides to work with industry and government tackling real-world issues and building the tools they’ll need to become leaders in their fields.
Our students conduct fieldwork in Costa Rica and Turkey, work in collaborative communities in Thailand and China, and sift through historical archives in France and Austria. They work side by side with experts at a top New York City accounting firm, sing with the Tri-Cities Opera Company and travel to underserved populations to study health issues.
As they progress through their training, students become junior colleagues to faculty — which helps recruit and retain the best faculty — and serve as role models and mentors for undergraduates as dedicated teaching assistants. When they leave us, graduates are a major conduit to the world, sharing the University’s knowledge and discoveries.
But it all requires generous financial support.
