Farmingdale State College (FSC) is empowering students to reach new heights by bringing innovative and progressive academic programs to students’ fingertips. This exciting journey of growth and success will allow individuals to unlock a world of knowledge and pursue their educational goals from anywhere in the world.

FSC is offering a diverse range of new programs tailored to meet the needs of today’s ambitious learners, and with its online platform students can pursue a degree or passion, enrich their skills to enhance career prospects, and achieve their academic goals on their own schedules.

2023 is a significant educational planning year for FSC, as the New York State Education Department approved two new online academic programs to launch in 2024: the master of science in nursing administration and the bachelor of science in artificial intelligence management.

Mastering Excellence in Nursing
The new master of science in nursing administration is the second graduate program in FSC’s portfolio. This 100 percent online program will prepare registered nurses to assume advanced practice nurse roles as administrators and leaders. The program is designed to fit within today’s evolving and global healthcare system.

The program emphasizes the leadership, administrative, and management skills necessary to coordinate comprehensive care, collaborate with an interdisciplinary healthcare team, and implement strategies that improve the healthcare environment.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the projected growth for nurses with a graduate degree in the United States is substantial, with a significant increase in demand for highly skilled and specialized nursing professionals in the coming years. This growth is fueled by factors such as an aging population, advancements in healthcare technology, and the increasing complexity of patient care, making a graduate degree in nursing a valuable asset for aspiring professionals seeking rewarding and in-demand career opportunities.

With FSC’s advanced degree program available online, aspiring nurses gain unparalleled convenience and flexibility to pursue their degrees on their terms. Harnessing the power of online education, students can personalize their learning experience by setting their own pace. Students who choose full-time study can complete the 35-credit program and earn their degree in just a year and a half.

Innovation Powered by Artificial Intelligence
FSC will launch its new bachelor of science degree in artificial intelligence management, the first such degree to be offered in the SUNY system. This is an online, upper-division program geared toward transfer students who have an associate degree in either business or computer science.

Artificial intelligence (AI) mimics human intelligence and learns from an enormous amount of data, allowing AI to unlock remarkable capabilities and redefining what is possible now and in the future. AI is revolutionizing industries, streamlining processes to enable breakthrough scientific discoveries, and reshaping how we live, work, and interact.

FSC’s degree program is designed to equip students with machine learning, algorithms, statistical reasoning, ethics, and sustainability knowledge. The program explores the application of AI within the functional areas of business, including marketing, finance, operations management, supply chain management, and project management.

This program is tailored to meet the unique needs of transfer students from Long Island community colleges and the Greater New York region. However, its allure extends far beyond geographical boundaries, attracting working adults from all over the country.
