The College is recognized for its innovative leadership in education, practice, scholarship, and service to improve health and the health professions.
Established in 2010, the College of Health Professions(CHP) at Pace University offers a broad range of programs at the bachelor, master, and doctoral levels. It is the College's goal to create innovative and complex programs that reflect the changing landscape of the health care system.
These programs are designed to prepare graduates for impactful careers in health care practice, health-related research, or as educators, and equip graduates to work in health policy and global health fields. Students in clinical programs receive hands-on training in The Center for Excellence in Healthcare Simulation and have the opportunity to apply their developing skills in real-world settings at many of the regions' leading clinical facilities.
The College is currently comprised of several growing and important areas of study, which include Nursing, Physician Assistant, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Health Science, and Nutrition and Dietetics.
Two New York locations—one Pace Path
Pace University believes your college experience should be more than the number of credits required to graduate. It should be a combination of strong academics, real-world experiences, and mentorships that guides you toward becoming successful, professionally and personally. That’s why we created the Pace Path.
With more than 100 majors and accelerated bachelor’s/graduate degree programs, Pace offers everything from Biochemistry and Business to Computer Science, Psychology, and Teaching. Our small class sizes—20 students on average—allow for personal attention from faculty who support student success.
We are committed to providing you with multiple opportunities to practice what you learn with internships, faculty-sponsored research, academic and professional competitions, school-sponsored projects with outside firms, community-based projects, and study abroad. At Pace, you can build an impressive résumé before you graduate.
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 the professional activities and entertainment the New York metropolitan area offers. You can intern at world-class companies in the city and those located closer to campus. Programs exclusive to this campus include Nursing and Communications (Video, Digital Journalism, and Public Relations).
