With small class sizes, personal attention by faculty and staff, job placement and transfer counseling, support services and more, SUNY Broome will help you make the most out of your college career.
SUNY Broome students who transfer to four-year institutions after earning an Associate’s degree typically perform better in the classroom than students who enroll in those institutions directly. Why? They learn to master the academic skills they will need while they’re at SUNY Broome, which gives them an edge at their transfer institution, as well as in the job market.
That’s because professors and staff members at SUNY Broome take the science of success very seriously. We spend countless hours studying the factors behind student success, and what students need to reach their goal: a college degree. This means developing new support programs to help our students in the classroom, and creating new opportunities for students to connect with applied learning resources, career readiness workshops, internships and jobs!
Whether you are looking to continue your education or enter the workforce, SUNY Broome will help you master the skills you need to achieve your goals — both in the classroom and out in the field.
Why should you start with us?
It pays to earn an Associate’s degree, whether you are looking to continue onto a Bachelor’s and beyond, or enter directly into the workforce. Here’s why:
- A bigger paycheck: Graduates with an Associate’s Degree can earn more than those with a Bachelor’s Degree in some fields.
- Improve your odds: Studies have shown that students who earn their Associate’s degree are more likely to earn a bachelor’s degree within three years than students without an Associate’s degree.
- Career benefits: Employers value candidates with an Associate’s degree, according to a Lumina Foundation report based on focus groups with employers and educational leaders. Why? Associate degree holders demonstrate a commitment to establishing and achieving goals, and they also display a strong work ethic.
- Find your path: Even if you plan to go on to earn a bachelor’s degree, an Associate’s degree can help you focus your skills in a unique way or add a new area of expertise to an existing career path. If you’re unsure what major or career path to pursue, it can also help you define your goals.
