Undergrad Profile

Two New York locations-—one outstanding academic and professional experience 

Pace University offers students a unique combination of stimulating academic programs and strong New York–based professional experiences so that our students are prepared to hit the ground running in their careers when they graduate. 

With more than 100 majors and accelerated bachelor’s/graduate degree programs, students at Pace study everything from biochemistry and business to computer science, psychology, and teaching. Our small class sizes—19 students on average—
allow for the kind of personal attention from faculty to support student success.

Plus, we are committed to providing students with multiple opportunities to practice what they learn with internships, faculty-sponsored research, academic and professional competitions, school-sponsored projects with outside firms, community-based projects, and study abroad. The Pace student can build an impressive résumé before graduation.

A Pace education also extends beyond the walls of the classroom with a variety of cultural events available on and around both campuses, student organizations, and leadership programs—all of which give you the opportunity to grow as an individual.

Pace’s New York advantage
We offer two campus locations—in the heart of New York City and in nearby Westchester County.

Our New York City campus is your home base for living, studying, and working in the most dynamic city in the United States. The city is your campus, with cultural and professional activities, learning opportunities, and internships at places like the Federal Reserve, Microsoft, Lincoln Center, the New York Stock Exchange, and many more. Programs exclusive to this campus include performing arts, forensic science, and arts and entertainment management. 

At our newly renovated Westchester campus in Pleasantville (just 34 miles from Manhattan), you can enjoy two sides of New York: the quintessential college campus lifestyle and easy access to all of the professional activities and entertainment that the New York metropolitan area offers. You can intern at world-class companies in the city and closer to campus. Programs exclusive to this campus include nursing and communications (video, digital journalism, and public relations).

Career Services = career preparation
Our Career Services team offers students one of the largest internship placement programs of any university in the New York metropolitan area, so it’s no surprise that Forbes ranks Pace as one of the top 20 colleges in the nation “that will make you rich.” Each year more than 5,000 Pace students participate in internships, practicums, and field work experiences. We take career preparation seriously and offer students a variety of services all the way to graduation and beyond.

The Pace academic experience prepares you for real-world success. You’ll never lose sight of your end-goal—your professors won’t let you. They’ll push you to excel beyond your own expectations. They’ll challenge you at every turn to think, feel, experience, debate, and listen. They’ll be your sounding board, your mentors, your counselors, your friends. But then again, they have the perfect setting: the Pace classroom. It’s inspiring, interactive, and rewarding.

Pforzheimer Honors College

Explore the world with study abroad
Pace University offers students the opportunity to spend a week, summer, semester, or year immersed in other cultures in order to gain a global perspective that will be useful in their future careers.
