The Career Center

Our mission is to help students explore, prepare, connect and share. We do this by providing services that empower students to develop and pursue career-related goals and complete meaningful practical experiences.

Students are invited to connect with us early in their time at Hofstra, so we can work with you to pursue meaningful practical experiences to support you academic and career goals.

  • About
  • Major Exploration

    Explore your major

    • Choosing your major is one part of discovering your purpose, both while you are at Hofstra and after you graduate. Everyone chooses a major in different ways based on interests, personal values, and experience. The Career Center provides support and exploration to start the conversation about who you are, who you want to be, and how you can get there.
    • While some majors are career specific, most majors translate to a variety of professions; more information is always a good thing. To get started, you can visit What Can I Do With This Major?* and schedule an appointment to explore with a counselor in the Career Center.

    *Some of these majors may not be offered at Hofstra University. Please seek additional information from The Career Center or the Center for University Adviseing.
