Research Opportunities

Student-faculty research is a benchmark of the Dyson College experience. Our faculty members are actively involved in both basic and applied research in a wide range of areas including cancer research, plant biology, global warming, bacterial pathogens, ecological field studies, and pediatric audiology studies. These research projects, many of which are funded by federal grants, include both undergraduate and graduate student participation. Our students have presented the results of their research work at national and international scientific meetings and have authored papers in scientific journals. They have also been the recipients of international fellowships for continued study in the United States and abroad.


Pace University is #1. According to U.S.News & World Report's Short List, Pace is one of the top five schools in the U.S. for internship placement. That makes Pace the No. 1 school for internships in metro New York.

Career Opportunities

There are many career paths you can follow with an undergraduate degree in Biology and Health Sciences including laboratory or field research; health care or public health work; environmental conservation; scientific policy work for local, state, or federal agencies; pharmaceutical marketing and sales; science writing; and communication in newspapers, websites, magazines, television, and radio. With additional certifications and degrees, students may also become medical doctors, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, physical therapists, optometrists, dentists, veterinarians, and teachers.

Many Pace graduates command starting salaries of $53,200 or more—that’s on par with the country’s most selective Ivy League schools. Through the generosity of the Dyson Foundation, the Dyson Hall of Science on the Pleasantville campus recently underwent a $5 million renovation, adding new state-of-the-art science laboratories and equipment. Our New York City campus is affiliated with the Haskins Laboratories, where students work alongside professors to conduct research studies on parasitic pathogens such as the organisms that cause African sleeping sickness, malaria, and tuberculosis. Our Environmental Center on the Pleasantville campus serves as a focal point for environmental awareness and education.
