A response from the College of Saint Rose, Albany, New York:

we offer a New York State History undergraduate survey course, usually three of us teaching it in a semester, and the course is scheduled on alternate Spring semesters. Two of us who teach this course are adjuncts. There are usually 3 or 4 sections and there will be 25-30 students enrolled in each. There is no main text used, as nothing has been in print for a long time. I am reading Milton Klein's new book in anticipation of using it. Otherwise, each instructor has chosen various books and woven them together via lectures.

We also offer a number of specialized one-credit weekend course in NYS/ NYS regional history, various books and lecturers who are adjunct faculty.  We offer two of these courses each semester, up from three per year. Enrollment is usually 15-25 students per course. Courses of this sort include (or have included):

American Revolution
Industrial revolution
Pre-industrial New York
the Palatine Germans
architecture of New York
Frontier Albany
Victorian Albany
New York in the Civil War
the Anti-Rent Wars
the Woodland Indians
Planes, Trains and Automobiles, a history of transportation
