Forensic Linguistics at Hofstra is a joke

Mar 21 2012Linguistics
Forensic Linguistics at Hofstra is a joke. All the courses are introductory/undergraduate level and if taking more than one from the same professor, chances are you will get the exact same lesson taught in each. For the money paid, that is not acceptable. Neither is the lackluster and unpreparedness of some professors who will waste entire class sessions (yes, plural) having students "discuss" the readings among themselves. Either that, or lectures consist of a regurgitation of the textbook. Better off getting a PhD at a respectable linguistics department if Forensic Ling is your objective.

Even when professors said

Even when professors said they would help and that they cared, they didn't. The university protects itself and not it's students.
