About

Stony Brook's internationally recognized Undergraduate College Academies program adds an academic dimension to the residential experience on campus. Participation in the UGC Academies, offers students the opportunity to work with faculty, staff and other students on projects designed to make academic and co-curricular connections. Each Academy sponsors events on campus and in the residence halls related to the academic minor and theme of each program.
The UGC Academies encourage students to discover, grow and build relationships that promote success during the college years and beyond. They also bring together varied disciplinary specializations, and scholarly topics to create an academic minor and activities related to that minor.

What makes the UGC Academies Unique?


• The Academies offer interdisciplinary minors, which means that all core courses explore a variety of disciplines and perspectives.

• Each Academy also offers a related certificate program. Students can pick their level of involvement from non-credit certificate program to academic minors.

• The academies are led by a team of faculty and staff, including a faculty director who provides students with additional mentorship and support.




Already have a minor or still exploring minors?


Get involved in one of the UGC Academy Certificate programs! These non-credit programs offer seminars and activities that introduce and emphasize interdisciplinary issues related to the minors.
