  • The Decker School of Nursing was established in 1969. The school offers undergraduate, master’s and doctoral degrees in nursing. The school is accredited by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
  • The Graduate School of Education was formed in July 2006 as part of the same reorganization that created the College of Community and Public Affairs. It offers master’s of science and doctoral degrees and is accredited by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC).
  • The School of Management is one of the nation's top 40 business schools (top 15 among public schools) and the most selective school on the Binghamton campus. It offers bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees in management, finance, information science, marketing and accounting. It is accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
  • Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer engineering, bioengineering, industrial engineering, materials science and computer science. All of the school's departments have been accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

The Graduate School administers advanced-degree programs and awards degrees through the six component colleges above. Graduate students will find almost 70 areas of study. Undergraduate and graduate students are taught and advised by a single faculty.

The University has announced plans to launch a law school, though some administrators have said that the plan is unlikely to continue. This initiative is in its earliest stages though an external review has been completed and the University is moving forward with its proposal. The administration has been working with SUNY, the governor, the American Bar Association (ABA) and other important organizations regarding required accreditation, which the school expects by the time the first class graduates. No decision on where the school will be located has been made.

Famous quotes containing the words colleges and, schools and/or colleges:

    I learn immediately from any speaker how much he has already lived, through the poverty or the splendor of his speech. Life lies behind us as the quarry from whence we get tiles and copestones for the masonry of today. This is the way to learn grammar. Colleges and books only copy the language which the field and the work-yard made.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    If the women of the United States, with their free schools and all their enlarged liberties, are not superior to women brought up under monarchical forms of government, then there is no good in liberty.
    Anna Howard Shaw (1847–1919)

    So far as the colleges go, the sideshows are swallowing up the circus.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
