I took a speech communication class that was wonderful. The professor and the students were open-minded. The experience allowed me to break out of my shell.”

hofstra.edu/hclas a wired campus At Hofstra, students use the resources of the Internet in all aspects of campus life. For example, for his course “Introduction to Middle Eastern and Central Asian Studies,” Professor of Anthropology Dr. Daniel M. Varisco, who is fluent in Arabic, developed a website of interactive resources.

“One of my goals is to give students an understanding of their responsibilities as American citizens. I also want to prepare them for life after Hofstra so they are able to enter the workforce capable of critical thinking. As their mentor, I treat students as unique, responsible adults. I question them about what they really want and provide advisement. By encouraging students to think about and be proactive with their future, I help them focus on what’s important — their goals.” RICHARD I. HIMELFARB, PH.D. Associate Professor of Political Science

“Being a teacher is a truly gratifying experience. My goal with students is twofold – to teach them legal principles and to demonstrate how the law affects current public policy. By integrating real-life situations into lessons, the law becomes illuminating. I provide students with cases they can relate to, and I encourage open discussion in relaxed, yet structured classes. It’s truly a pleasure to share knowledge that students will use and to act as their mentor.” STUART L. BASS, J.D., M.P.A.

Professor of Accounting, Taxation, and Legal Studies in Business

YOU’LL PREPARE FOR A CAREER WITH HANDS-ON, REAL-WORLD EXPERIENCE — almost from the day you walk through the doors of Dempster Hall,

home to one of the largest noncommercial broadcast facilities in the Northeast as well as NewsHub, our state-of-the-art converged newsroom and multimedia classroom.

accomplished faculty real-world experience

The SCHOOL OF COMMUNICATION offers a liberal arts-based, interdisciplinary program of study in all forms of communication that balances the how and why we communicate. Students choose from a wide range of majors in radio/television/film; journalism, media studies, and public relations; and speech communication, rhetoric and performance studies. In “American Public Address” (SPCM 128), students learn how to recognize and evaluate effective persuasion by political figures, social activists and other famous Americans. Students gain an understanding of the power of language from watching Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, learn to identify the strengths and weaknesses in opposing arguments by examining congressional and public debates over the war in Afghanistan, and appreciate the power of radical street theater by studying PETA animal rights demonstrations and WTO protests about global environmental and economic issues. Every two years, Olympic broadcasting reaches roughly 20 percent of the world’s population. Olympic television production represents the cutting edge of industry practice and innovation, with the past few productions showcasing an unprecedented range of exciting nonlinear technologies. In “Olympic Programming and Production” (RTVF 184), students have investigated “behind-the-scenes” programming and producing at the 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, Athens, Torino and Beijing, respectively. In “Public Relations Campaigns” (PR 107), the class operates as a public relations agency on a pro bono basis for a nonprofit client. Students meet with the client for background research, create a start-to-finish strategic proposal, make a formal presentation to the client, and, with the client’s approval, spend the semester executing the plan, which may include producing materials such as brochures, media releases and special events.

Walter Thompson), Grey Worldwide, Random House, Time Warner, Sesame Workshop, and Seventeen magazine are among the companies that have hired Hofstra alumni.

“The School of Communication offers an abundance of resources. I often use the NewsHub as a place to get my assignments done or to find out what is going on in the news. By far, my professors are my most valuable resource. As a public relations major, getting an internship is necessary to graduate. Since the professors in the school have a great deal of experience in their fields, they were able to help me find one. They really go out of their way to help.”
