Farmingdale State College and Adelphi University have launched a streamlined partnership to expand student success. Farmingdale students can now access articulated pathways to continue their graduate studies at Adelphi in four master’s programs: business analytics, computer science, general psychology (with a human resource management concentration) and sports management (offering both in-person and online options).

“As Long Island’s oldest private university, we are pleased to offer this unique opportunity to Farmingdale State students,” said Steve Everett, Adelphi’s provost and executive vice president. “Farmingdale State students will be welcomed into our diverse and close-knit community, where they will benefit from their experiences with our outstanding faculty and Adelphi’s personalized support services. We have launched this partnership with four highly ranked graduate programs in high-demand career fields. We hope to expand this program with Farmingdale State College to offer additional master’s degrees in the future.”

This new partnership guarantees admissions to the stated graduate programs upon completion of certain pre-requisite classes and maintenance of minimum grade point averages. The program also allows several of the master’s requirements to be satisfied with specific undergraduate courses, saving time and tuition while earning a graduate degree.

“Farmingdale State College values the role that these partnerships play in providing students with designated pathways to continue their education at the graduate level,” said Farmingdale State College Provost Laura Joseph. “Through the seamless alignment of specialized programs, students are provided with advance standing opportunities that decrease the time needed for degree attainment.”

Adelphi enrolls more than 2,500 graduate students in 62 master’s programs and advanced certificates along with seven doctoral degrees. Farmingdale State, with nearly 10,000 students, has 44 bachelor’s programs in addition to certificates and a master’s program in technology management.

Farmingdale students who qualify for admission to the Adelphi master’s programs automatically will be considered for a variety of Adelphi graduate scholarship opportunities.

Undergraduate students eligible for the master’s programs through this partnership must choose to major in one of following undergraduate disciplines:

  • Business Analytics: Business Analytics, Business Management, Global Business Management, Applied Economics, Sport Management, Computer Programming and Information Systems, or Computer Science.
  • Sports Management: Sport Management, Professional Communications, Visual Communications, Business Management, Global Business Management or Business Analytics.
  • General Psychology (with a human resource management concentration): Applied Psychology.
