Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

The health care administration program at Hofstra University is a very good one. The faculty is well trained and has a lot of experience in the field. They are also very inviting and provide a lot of career advice. The classes are also very good and interesting and students learn a lot about real-life situations. I encourage this program to anyone looking to have a career in health administration.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The grad program allows me to study at home through their online classes while at the same time still letting me take physical classes when needed. Hofstra is a bit expensive, and while is up and coming competitively, still has some way to go.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2016

The PR graduate program at Hofstra is great. Some of the pro's include the networking opportunities, the resources, accessibility of some of the professors, and the education quality. However, there are some cons that need to be addressed. I am aware that the program is only in its second year, but there needs to be more visibility and steps taken to bring awareness of this new program. In addition to that, classes should be offered in the day time as well, with the option to take more than one class a day. Perhaps even hire more professors who are not just adjunct. Lastly, there needs to be opportunities for graduate students within the program to connect and work with one another outside of the classroom.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

Some questions were irrelevant to me because it is off-site program so I am not taking classes at main campus. Pros: Most classes within the program are online. This helps me because I am a full-time employee working 9-5 hours. One day of night classes which is in close proximity to my work place. This program seems to be designed for working professionals within the area. Cons: Hard to walk-in and talk to an advisor for financial and academic help since the main campus is located further away.

Degree: Psychology

The Applied Organizational Psychology program at Hofstra University is a wonderfully challenging program with helpful and highly intelligent faculty. Both students and faculty provide a great support system to help you adjust to the program and be successful.

Hofstra's Health Care Administration program is one of the best in the country and I feel very honored to be learning in the school. The school is composed of very intelligent and approachable faculty, and the learning experience is invaluable.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2016

As a part time student in a brand new grad program, I love that the class size is small. I generally have about 10-11 people in my class and we really get one on one attention from our Professors. Since the program is new there are only night programs available. I am hoping that weekend courses and winter courses will be available at some point in my college experience. Since my courses are at night and I am coming straight from work, I barely get a chance to explore the campus activities and organizations. I wish there was more available for commuters in the grad programs.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

Choosing to attend the Hofstra University Physician Assistant program has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. It is a community truly dedicated to advancing the physician assistant profession and providing students with the skills necessary to provide the highest quality health care possible to the community. As a student I have been able to pursue every opportunity I desired with the full support of the faculty and staff. I would highly recommend anyone considering applying to PA school to apply to Hofstra University

If programs were ranked solely by the quality of faculty and happiness of students Hofstra would consistently be number one.
