Undergraduate Programs & Courses
Human affairs revolve around language. Linguistics enables students to understand the inner workings of this most special human tool: how and why communication happens or fails to happen, how language creates solidarity and division among groups, how the structure of language is the structure of human intelligence. Hofstra is unique – the only university in the Americas where students can pursue a graduate degree in Forensic Linguistics. Undergrads may take a course that explores this field, and qualified undergraduate students may take graduate courses in Forensic Linguistics during their senior year, or may seek admission into the combined BA/MA in Linguistics: Forensic Linguistics.
