With the top-notch resources and wide-ranging programs of a large university and the sense of community and personal attention of a small college, Hofstra is a great place for students who are looking for a traditional campus experience without sacrificing the networking opportunities, internship experiences, and cultural offerings of a bustling metropolis.

Opportunities are available to conduct research with distinguished professors, intern with top-tier finance or media companies or in the state legislature or Congress, and to work in our cutting-edge facilities such as the Martin B. Greenberg Trading Room or WRHU-88.7 FM, Radio Hofstra University, which was named the top college radio station in the country by The Princeton Review (2015, 2016).

Our hard-working, ambitious students are taught by Guggenheim Fellows and Fulbright Scholars, Emmy Award recipients, prize-winning scientists, leaders in business, education, and the health sciences, and knowledgeable and insightful thinkers. Our 1,157 faculty members (of which 498 are full-time) are leading educators and experts dedicated to providing the foundation.

Internationally recognized
Hofstra is consistently ranked among the best colleges and universities, has been recognized with 25 academic and professional accreditations in disciplines, and is one of only three New York regional universities with colleges of law, medicine, and engineering.
