The Right Program for You School of Education Learn more at hofstra.edu/education

The School of Education is composed of the Departments of Health Studies and Kinesiology; Special Education; and Teaching, Literacy and Leadership. Undergraduates carry a full co-major in an academic area in addition to the education courses necessary for initial certification in early childhood, elementary and secondary education. There is also a five-year Bachelor of Science/Master of Science program that leads to a dual degree in physical education and health education. Key features include small class size, individual mentoring, a dedicated curriculum library, and field placement opportunities. Fellowships are also available for those who will teach in high-needs areas or math. You’ll interact with nationally recognized, well-published faculty who will prepare you – using the highly interactive multimedia resources of Hagedorn Hall – to meet the requirements to sit for the New York State Teacher Certification Examinations; approximately 94 percent of Hofstra program graduates pass these exams.

School of Education undergraduates can also rely on high-quality, comprehensive career services from Hofstra University’s Career Center. Career counselors help students build strong resumes and secure valuable internships as well as jobs after graduation. Career Center services and resources include one-onone appointments with career counselors, access to thousands of job and internship postings, career fairs, on-campus recruitment programs, career-related webshops, mock interviews, resume and cover letter writing, and online management of recommendation letters.

In addition, Hofstra University’s Joan and Arnold Saltzman Community Services Center provides on-campus experiential learning opportunities at its Diane Lindner-Goldberg Child Care Institute, an early education center for children aged 8 weeks through pre-K, and the Reading/Writing Learning Clinic, which provides literacy support for children and adults.
