Hofstra University

Undergraduate Research

Your breakthroughs could change the world.

At Hofstra, we don’t just study existing knowledge — we uncover new information. In our libraries and laboratories, in our studios, and on our stages, faculty lead students in research that informs and enriches the classroom experience, and that builds skills in nuanced inquiry and advanced discovery. As an undergraduate, you’ll engage in research as you move from foundational courses to deeper studies in your discipline. And if you’re an advanced student, you’ll get the chance to conduct independent, supervised research as a junior or senior. This research will serve as the capstone to your work and demonstrate your mastery of the subject — and it could lead to a major breakthrough.
