Stony Brook Southampton
In 2006, Stony Brook University completed its purchase of the former Southampton College. The School of Marine and Atmospheric Science offers several undergraduate courses at Stony Brook Southampton and operates a marine field station on Shinnecock Bay with access to the Atlantic Ocean.
In addition to the Marine Sciences program, Stony Brook Southampton offers an M.F.A. creative writing program, headed by Professor Robert Reeves. The creative writing program at Southampton also hosts the Writers Conference, a 30-year institution on the East End, annually attracting leading authors and artists from across the country.
