    The Hofstra Experience

    Exploration, experimentation, and production in a community of learners.


    From the abstract to the tangible, ideas become action through research, making, prototyping, and exhibiting.


    Through vigorous expression, artists, designers, and scholars take responsibility for the stances reflected in what they make.


    Innovation and future-building through production and scholarship.

    Outside the Classroom

    The Student Experience

    Since the Hofstra campus is just a short train ride from New York City, the world center of the arts and design, there are limitless possibilities for networking, internships, and experiential learning.
