Stony Brook is an internationally recognized research university offering graduate degrees in the arts and sciences, engineering, business, and the health professions, including 44 doctoral programs and a wide variety of master's and certificate programs. The 2014 U.S.News & World Report Best Grad Schools ranked 10 of those programs in the top 50. Enrollment totals 24,000: 16,000 undergraduates and 8,000 graduate students from 49 U.S. states and 105 countries. A member of the elite Association of American Universities, Stony Brook is one of the 62 top research institutions in North America, with $182.7 million in annual sponsored research and 1,866 active research projects. Campus research programs are complemented by strong ties to Brookhaven National Laboratory and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory which are both nearby. Stony Brook faculty are leaders in significant national and worldwide projects, including uncovering the causes of lobster mortality in Long Island Sound, searching for the origins of man in Kenya’s Turkana Basin, and managing the national parks of Madagascar. They have made significant contributions to NASA initiatives, such as examining Martian minerals for evidence of life and other phenomena, and their work has led to such groundbreaking discoveries as a new species of mouse lemur, the smallest primate in the world; the cause of Lyme disease; and the invention of the MRI technology that won the Nobel Prize for Medicine. Stony Brook offers more than 200 undergraduate programs, 100 master’s programs and 40 doctoral programs, residing in 12 colleges and schools: College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business, College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Graduate School, School of Dental Medicine, School of Health Technology and Management, School of Journalism, School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, School of Medicine, School of Nursing, School of Professional Development and School of Social Welfare. The School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences features waterfront learning at Stony Brook Southampton’s new Marine Sciences Research Center. And Stony Brook’s study abroad programs provide unique learning opportunities in countries around the globe, including Argentina, Italy, Jamaica, Korea, Madagascar and Tanzania. The C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics, founded by Nobel Prize-winning physicist and Stony Brook Professor Emeritus Chen Ning Yang, is a leading center for high-energy physics, string theory and statistical mechanics. The Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology seeks to advance biology and medicine through discoveries in physics, mathematics and computational science. Researchers from around the world also gather at the University’s Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, where they explore synergies between theoretical physics and mathematics to deepen our understanding of the physical universe. Stony Brook’s Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT) and two state-designated Centers for Advanced Technology — in diagnostic tools and sensor systems and in biotechnology — facilitate partnerships between New York State industry and University research. The Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center (AERTC) brings together academic and research institutions, energy providers and industry to focus on innovative energy solutions. Brookhaven National Laboratory, which is co-managed by the University, includes the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, Center for Functional Nanomaterials, National Synchrotron Light Source, National Synchrotron Light Source II, NASA Space Radiation Facility, Accelerator Test Facility, Computational Science Center, and Brookhaven Linac Isotope Producer. The Laboratory’s almost 3,000 scientists, engineers and staff are joined each year by more than 4,000 visiting researchers from around the world. Brookhaven research has been honored by seven Nobel Prizes. The entrepreneurial energy and economic strength of the University bring a combined benefit of $4.6 billion to the region’s economy. The University is the largest single-site employer in the region, with more than 14,000 full- and part-time employees. Through its high-technology incubators, the University has promoted the launch of 44 companies. Stony Brook Medicine, the region’s premier academic medical center, encompasses Stony Brook University Hospital, Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, 50 community-based healthcare settings, and five health sciences schools. With 603 beds, Stony Brook University Hospital serves as the region’s only tertiary care center and Regional Trauma Center. It is also home to the Stony Brook University Cancer Center, Heart Institute, Neurosciences Institute and Digestive Disorders Institute. Also part of Stony Brook Medicine is the Long Island State Veterans Home, a 350-bed skilled nursing facility that serves as a site...
