The State University of New York College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill has been a leader in hands-on learning for more than a century. Today, more 2,500 students are enrolled in 59 associate and baccalaureate degree programs in the School of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the School of Business and Liberal Arts & Sciences.
A SUNY Cobleskill education is defined by innovative, experiential learning. Our 100-year-old standard that students learn by doing was formalized in 2016 with the SUNY system’s first applied learning requirement, guaranteeing that every SUNY Cobleskill student graduates with real-world experience.
Students live and learn on a modern, 902-acre campus that features outstanding educational facilities, including:
The new Center for Environmental Science and Technology and the $38.7-million Center for Agricultural and Natural Resources provide students with state-of-the-art facilities to pursue study and research opportunities in Environmental and Energy Technology, Plant Sciences, Fisheries & Wildlife, and Animal Sciences.
The academic experience at SUNY Cobleskill is complemented by countless opportunities for students to challenge themselves inside and outside the classroom. Campus-wide events, more than 50 student clubs, and residence hall councils are just a few examples of potential leadership positions. Students can also participate in a full array of intramural and intercollegiate athletics on 20 Fighting Tigers sports teams.

Points of Pride
SUNY Cobleskill is a proud home to “Survivor Trees,” gracing the entrance of our campus at Route 7 and Schoharie Parkway. These trees were propagated from a lone surviving tree at Ground Zero in the aftermath of September 11, 2001. Originally a gift from John Bowne High School in Flushing, Queens, today these trees grow as a symbolic reminder of the tragedy of 9/11, and deeply-rooted pillars of our commitment to sustainability and resilience.
