Economics, History, and Political Science (PLV)
Welcome to the Department of Economics, History, and Political Science on Pace University’s Pleasantville campus. Courses offered by our department provide students with the tools necessary for a better understanding of business, history, political science, law – or simply a thorough grasp of what makes the world tick.
The department offers Bachelor of Arts degrees (BA) in Economics, Political Science, Global and Professional Studies, and History, as well a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Business Economics. Minors in Economics, African and African-American Studies, East Asian Studies, History, Middle Eastern Studies, and Political Science are also available. The rigor of our major and minor programs enables students to compete successfully in an ever more challenging world; yet the programs are flexible enough to allow students to meet their individual educational goals. Independent research opportunities abound through seminars, independent studies, and tutorials. We believe that education is not about accumulating a collection of facts, but rather developing learning techniques and thought processes that enable students to analyze and develop a profound understanding of global issues.
Internships are also available in all three disciplines, and like our traditional and online courses, they afford students an opportunity to interact with faculty members who are not only knowledgeable but friendly and approachable. During a student’s time in the department, a faculty advisor/mentor will work closely with the student to ensure academic success at Pace and to provide a superior level of guidance in the areas of graduate/professional school selection and career exploration. In addition to our BA and BS degrees, student may elect to pursue a five-year Masters in Public Administration degree (MPA) or a six year BA/JD with Pace Law School.
We encourage you to contact our department or visit us to learn more. We will help you tailor a program that is right for you.
