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:

  • welcomes students to a select and congenial community of scholars, faculty and professionals who value both teaching and scholarship
  • promotes and facilitates the pursuit of lifelong education in traditional and nontraditional arenas
  • encourages scholarship, research and professional training in and across disciplines, fostering sound, and creative thinking

Graduate school should be intellectually exhilarating and challenging. At Hofstra you will find a field that fascinates you and a profession that you will want to pursue with lifelong passion and commitment. Look through these pages carefully, explore the variety of programs we offer, and come visit us. We invite you to spend time on our campus, meet with Directors of our graduate programs, talk to some of our students, visit a class-and feel the excitement of Hofstra University for yourself. We are an extraordinary community.
