Check us out, head to toe.

The human body and mind are amazing. If you’re fascinated by the complexity and possibility of each human being, we have the right program for you.

For the physical side, we have programs in nursing, massage therapy, human performance & health promotion (think about sports and fitness), or dietetics and nutrition.

For the mental and developmental side, we offer programs in applied psychology, early childhood education, human services (think about helping specialized populations in need), and teacher education. We also offer health-related studies and a healthcare office coordinator program if you know you want to play an integral role in a health care environment.

SUNY Morrisville has faculty and staff who know what it means to be a health care professional. They have studied and passed the exams, worked in the field and now teach the next generation. Maintaining professional credentials and practices ensures that our professors, instructors and assistants are the best coaching team to nurture your potential.

The facilities where you will learn and practice will give you real experience to transfer to the real world. With a variety of anatomical and practice manikins, specialized labs, test kitchens, a child care center, an exercise laboratory and other equipment, you will get to practice until you’re perfect.

The hands-on experience doesn’t stop at the campus’s borders. We have dozens of agreements with clinical sites and other partners who will give you exposure to the health professions world. Working with actual clients and patients will give you the confidence and sense of personal satisfaction to motivate you for a successful career.
