One of Hostos Community College’s distinguishing features is its bilingual education offerings, intended to educate its largely Hispanic population while enhancing the multiculturalism of the student body.
Located in the South Bronx in New York City, Hostos is the two-year arm of the City College of New York (CUNY) system. Dual degree options in such fields as Electrical, Chemical and Civil Engineering, Criminal Justice and Community Health allow students to transfer directly to one of the respected four-year CUNY schools.
Other programs in which Hostos students may obtain a degree are Accounting, Teacher Education, Public Administration, Liberal Arts and Nursing, among others.
Sensitive to and appreciative of the multiculturalism that New York City represents, Hostos is dedicated to the bilingual education of its largely Hispanic population. Transitional language instruction is also an integral part of the Hostos experience, with ESL courses helping students to move into English proficiency.
Student services at Hostos include an academic computing center, tutoring, career counseling and development services, personal counseling, a mentoring program, health services and disability support.
There are also student activities such as athletic teams and clubs in which students may participate for recreational, enrichment and academic enhancement purposes.
Pell grants, federal work-study, scholarships, loans and book vouchers are some of the financial aid options available to those who qualify. Contact Hostos Community College for more details.
