Graduate Study at Hofstra University
Founded in 1935 as Long Island’s first coeducational college, Hofstra has evolved into a major independent university. Hofstra today offers distinguished graduate programs in education, business, law, and in the arts and sciences.
Graduate Study at Hofstra University is characterized by both its broad intellectual reach and its scholarly and scientific depth. Hofstra graduate students are educated by and work closely with a distinguished, nationally recognized faculty who are highly respected in their chosen fields. Both our faculty and students seek a learning environment and experiences that connect scholarship in the academy and work in the profession. A Hofstra graduate education will provide you with the foundation you need to reach your highest personal and professional aspirations.
In all its graduate programs, Hofstra University:

This publication has been designed by the Hofstra University Bulletin Office. Cover layout and design by Kelvin Fonville. Photo credit: John McKeith. The Hofstra Labyrinth is adapted from the world renowned labyrinth in Chartres Cathedral, France, circa 1200 of the Common Era. By tradition, labyrinths are considered symbols of spiritual and intellectual enlightenment, paths walked from periphery to center as metaphors for the journeys in life from sickness to health, despair to promise, ignorance to knowledge. Visitors walked the labyrinth as a token of their pilgrimage obligations during the period of the Crusades of the Middle Ages. The composition has been set in types of Times New Roman, Minerva and Renaissance font families.
