Romance Languages and Literatures


Hofstra’s proximity to New York City means students in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures have numerous opportunities to expand upon their core undergraduate education by interning within the professional work force or participating in professional level activities. 

Majors in French, Italian, or Spanish may secure internships through the Office of Off-Campus Education (OCE). OCE provides guidance and leads on how to obtain an internship that fulfills HCLAS degree requirements. With the help of the OCE coordinator and the chair of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, students who have secured an internship designate a faculty sponsor, who will direct a research paper related to some aspect of the student's work.

For more information on OCE please call Rene M. Giminiani-Caputo at (516) 463-5823 or via email.
