Global Studies and Geography

Our Department, a great place for students!

Welcome to the Department of Global Studies and Geography.

  • Students can pursue a B.A. in Global Studies, Geography, a Pre-Health B.A. in either subject, or a B.S. in Geographic Information Systems (GIS). We also offer minors in all of the above, and a joint minor in Computer Science/GIS.
  • We prepare students for a wide-variety of future careers. Global Studies was recently named among the top 10 majors for the new economy.”
  • Geography has become more sought after by employers particularly for those with knowledge of GIS.
  • We encourage all majors to undertake internships.
  • We encourage our students to partake in study abroad programs and work with them to allow credits taken abroad to count toward our majors.
  • We are willing to help students tailor a program of study that’s right for them and help them shape rewarding post-Hofstra careers in our increasingly global future.
  • We have a thriving student club, and house a campus chapter of Gamma Theta Upsilon, the international geographical honor society.
  • Year after year we produce among the highest achieving majors on campus.

Consider joining our dynamic community of faculty and students. You will not be disappointed.
