If you are seeking a Geological Sciences program within the SUNY system, you will no longer find it at Albany. The Stony Brook, Binghamton, and Buffalo university centers offer graduate study in Geological Sciences. At SUNY 4-year colleges, New Paltz, Oneonta, and Plattsburgh, among others, maintain (as of 2017) undergraduate programs in Geology. Within the NY Capital District, two introductory geology courses are offered at HVCC; in private colleges, undergraduate programs are found at Union College, and RPI; College of St Rose has closed admission to its Geology and Earth Science programs as of December 2015. Students intending to qualify as high school earth science teachers are recommended to contact the program at Union College for geology courses; otherwise the nearest SUNY colleges offering significant education in the geological sciences are those mentioned above.
