School of Health Professions and Human Services

The School of Health Professions and Human Services at Hofstra University was created to address the increasing need for qualified professionals to work in homes, schools, clinics, hospitals, the work place, the government, community agencies and other health care facilities. Through competency based instruction, field experience and research training, students receive clinical education in approaches that maximize occupational, communicative, biological, psychological, social, and interpersonal development across the lifespan.
