What Students and Alumni are Saying
The environment in the Sociology Department at Hofstra University provided me with the tools to excel in graduate school and fostered an intellectual foundation for my budding career as a sociologist.

PhD candidate in Sociology,
University at Albany, SUNY
The Sociology Department at Hofstra University taught me to think critically about social life at all levels; be it in one’s personal life, at the local community level, or on a global scale. Besides expanding my awareness and offering me a better understanding of the world around me,the department and the wonderful professors also encouraged me to actively engage in community affairs in the local area.

The Sociology Department consists of an extremely knowledgeable faculty who truly care about their students’ educational achievements and personal successes. I would not have made it to where I am today without the support and encouragement of my professors at Hofstra.

….as I walk the streets of Manhattan and observe people’s behaviors and interactions, I ponder over how factors of religion, social class, status, institutions and race influence individuals’ future opportunities, how individuals think and how they live.

The most important thing sociology has given me, however, is the certainty of what I want to do with my life. All I have learned up until now has given me the certainty of wanting to work with societies that don’t have the same opportunities as we do.
