The Faculty

As a result of their research and scholarly attainments in their own fields of specialization, Fredonia faculty members have demonstrated their competence to offer graduate instruction. Since most classes are small, students are often able to work closely with their instructors and may join them in research projects. Information about the research interests of faculty members is available from department chairpersons, directors, and deans.

Fredonia's graduate policies develop from several levels of authority and responsibility: local, regional and national. Campus governance legislates academic policies through the University Senate and its committees under the guidance and leadership of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. SUNY Fredonia's master's programs are registered and certified by the State of New York. On a national level, accreditation bodies supervise the curriculum and quality of programs by setting standards and benchmarks. Accredited programs are listed at the beginning of the online University Catalog.
