Welcome to the home page of the College of Arts and Sciences at Stony Brook!
The College of Arts and Sciences is made up of a very broad array of academic departments and programs engaged in research and teaching in the fine arts, humanities, social and behavioral sciences, biological sciences, physical sciences, and mathematics. At the undergraduate level, we offer 36 majors and 39 minors leading to the B.A. or B.S. degree. For students interested in certification as secondary school teachers, we offer, in conjunction with the Professional Education Program and the School of Professional Development, nine combined programs of study leading to the B.A. and M.A.T. degrees. For students with an interest in advanced study, we offer, in conjunction with the Graduate School, 29 programs of study leading to the M.A., M.S., or M.F.A. degree, one program leading to the D.M.A., 27 programs of study leading to the Ph.D. degree, and four programs of study leading to Advanced Graduate Certificates.
In the College of Arts and Sciences at Stony Brook, students have the opportunity to study with faculty who are leaders in research, scholarship, or creative expression, as well as dedicated educators.

One Billion Rising
On V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, the Center for Dance, Movement, and Somatic Learning joined the global One Billion Rising movement for women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to violence.
During the improvisational workshop, participants explored what it takes to rise up against something difficult and how we can learn to recover forgotten parts of our lives through acts of serious and restorative play.
