From health technologies to veterinary care and forensic science, Alfred State College (ASC) is ranked top 10 in the nation among schools with selected majors. The 2018 Best Colleges list from US News and World Report and other ranking sites have awarded the college high national honors when comparing schools offering programs in the School of Arts and Sciences.
Serving the healthcare needs of patients – both human and animal – is the focus for several of the programs, while the school’s agricultural, environmental, human services, interdisciplinary, and nursing majors also are among the selected majors.
“While there are many schools offering programs in the arts and sciences, it’s great to see an objective source recognizing us as one of the top-ranked in the nation,” said Interim Dean Dr. Ingrid Johnston for the School of Arts and Sciences at Alfred State. “When students and parents compare schools in medicine, science, technology, and so many other fields, this could place Alfred State at the top of their lists.”
