School of Engineering and Applied Science
The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences holds accreditations from the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology). The Department of Engineering offers bachelor’s degrees in electrical engineering, engineering science (with Biomedical, and Civil Engineering options available), industrial engineering and mechanical engineering. The Department of Computer Science offers bachelor’s degrees in computer science, computer engineering and a dual major with the mathematics department. A graduate MS degree, both online and on campus, is also available within the Computer Science Department. The school teaches and encourages leadership, creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship.
All junior level students are eligible for a “co-op” experience, where classroom learning is blended with a real-life occupational experience with our partners, lasting for a summer and the proceeding or following semester. Not only does this educational methodology ease the transition from University to work, but the co-op experience also frequently results in an offer of full-time employment upon graduation.
Our faculty are dedicated, committed teachers with strong advisory skills. Both classroom and laboratory courses are deliberately limited in size, creating a pervasive, intimate atmosphere and easy rapport between student peers and our highly qualified faculty. Up to date laboratories support theoretical teaching, and our distinguished faculty constantly update courses as new technological developments ensue. The School’s research involvement is high, and many instructors hold grant awards supporting their investigations.
School of Health Professions and Human Services
Bringing together the fields of rehabilitation, counseling and therapy, speech-language pathology, audiology, public health and health management, the Hofstra University School of Health Professions and Human Services offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate and programs designed to educate the next generation of practitioners, advocates, managers and health care policymakers. Through partnerships with arts and sciences, medicine, education, business, communication and law, the School of Health Professions and Human Services provides an interdisciplinary environment where students learn to provide therapeutic and developmental services; prevent, diagnose and treat illness and disabilities; and design, implement, administer and evaluate health promotion programs, policies and systems. The school offers several undergraduate programs that provide students with excellent preparation for work in health care settings and a foundation for graduate study in education and health-related professions. Programs include study in the liberal arts and sciences to develop analytic skills, encourage critical thinking, and foster personal development and engagement in the world.
The mission of the Hofstra University School of Health Professions and Human Services is to educate students in the theory and practices of their specialized area of study, with a strong foundation in the natural, social and behavioral sciences. Through competency based instruction, field experience and research training, students are educated to become effective and compassionate clinicians, evidence-based practitioners, policy makers, managers and advocates who promote health equity. Students receive clinical education in approaches that maximize occupational, communicative, biological, psychological, social and interpersonal development across the lifespan. Students are prepared to work in settings that include the home, the school, the clinic, the hospital and other health care facilities, the work place, the government and community agencies. The School of Health Professions and Human Services serves as a community resource by offering continuing education opportunities, promoting collaborative clinical and research initiatives, advocating for underserved populations, and providing services that model best practices.
The Hofstra Northwell School of Graduate Nursing and Physician Assistant Studies is poised to become a national and global leader in preparing students to meet the growing need for qualified advanced-care nurses and physician assistants who deliver community-based health care.
Launched in March, the school offers several options for advanced learning: master’s degrees in family nurse practitioner and adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioner programs, as well as a master’s degree and a dual bachelor’s/master’s degree program in physician assistant studies.
The school expands the successful medical-school partnership between Hofstra University and Northwell Health. It incorporates the University’s diverse academic programs and infrastructure, as well as Northwell’s significant clinical activities and educational resources, in its mission to provide an innovative interprofessional education to a new generation of health care leaders.
