Paul Smith’s application of hands-on education is unparalleled. When it comes to hands-on education, no one does it better than Paul Smith’s College. Our students learn through experience, with programs and projects that combine proven career training with a meaningful exploration of self, society and the earth. And what better way to learn about the environment than on our 14,000-acre campus right in the heart of the world-famous ‘forever wild’ Adirondacks in upstate New York.

This private four-year college accepts students throughout the year, offering degree programs in Forestry, Environmental Studies, and Fisheries and Wildlife Science, among many more. The college prides itself on creating student-orientated academic courses to ensure everyone has a chance to learn, analyse and ask questions. But Paul Smith’s is not your average college, employing teaching styles that blend traditional classroom learning, fieldwork, laboratory research, internships and on-the-job experience.
Aside from its great programs, accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, there are many reasons why this school would be the perfect place to start your tertiary education. Not only do you get to live in the Adirondacks, you get to learn all about it and work with the school to protect and preserve the natural resources of the place. The United Nations has designated our region as part of an international biosphere reserve.
