Hofstra College of

Liberal Arts and Sciences

At Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (HCLAS), you can explore and discover new talents while preparing for a wide range of career options. You will learn lasting skills that are valued in every field and be inspired in small classes taught by exceptional faculty. Outside the classroom, there are hundreds of special events providing depth, context, and new perspective about what you are learning in class.

Our college is the academic home for students, faculty, and staff in over 100 different undergraduate and graduate degree-granting programs, organized into four different schools:


First-Year Connections

Hofstra's first-year seminars and clusters are designed to get your college experience off to a great start.

Interdisciplinary Programs

HCLAS is home to a variety of degree programs that fall across several areas of study.

Undergraduate Programs

Explore undergraduate degrees and minors offered by the departments in HCLAS's four schools, covering everything from anthropology to writing studies.

Graduate Programs

Take the next step in your career or set out on an entirely new professional path with HCLAS's master’s degree programs, allowing you to hone your interests in the sciences, arts, and humanities. 

Dual Degree/Accelerated

Dual degree and accelerated programs allow you to earn both an undergraduate and graduate degree in less time than if each degree was pursued separately. This could save on the cost of one or more semesters of tuition.

For Students


HCLAS students have a variety of resources available to them, including research centers, internships and experiential learning opportunities, and grants and scholarships.


No matter your academic interest, you will find outstanding faculty and engaged peers in every HCLAS program: our curricula, in all four schools, are designed to help students learn to analyze the arguments of others – whether those arguments are verbal, scientific, musical, theatrical, or visual – and, ultimately, to construct their own arguments, making their own contributions to education, the arts, humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences and mathematics.
