About SUNY Canton

SUNY Canton offers 29 career-driven bachelor's degrees, 21 associate degrees, 5 one-year professional certificate programs, and 16 online degrees. Areas of study fall into one of three unique schools: The Canino School of Engineering Technology, The School of Business and Liberal Arts, The School of Health, Science and Criminal Justice. All academic programs are designed in a ladder curriculum, meaning students who start in a certificate or associate program can apply their first years of study toward their associate or bachelor’s degree.
