News Story

While the semester may be winding down, the Elisabeth Haub School of Law and Dyson College have some exciting announcements for next semester and beyond.

Elisabeth Haub School of Law Announces Innovative Partnership

The Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University and the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, a senior college of the City University of New York, have agreed to a new “3 + 3” partnership, which will allow students to obtain a bachelor’s degree and a JD degree in six years, instead of seven. The agreement announced today will help qualified students jumpstart their legal careers by allowing them to complete their JD degree a year earlier by starting their first year of law school while they are completing their undergraduate degrees.

“Pace Law is proud to be an innovator in legal education,” said Elisabeth Haub School of Law Dean Horace Anderson. “We are pleased to partner with CUNY’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice to offer a new opportunity for students who are interested in the law to begin their legal training early, save them time and money, and prepare them to be lawyers who are able to meet the complex legal challenges facing the world today.”

Dyson Launches PhD in Clinical Psychology

In April, Dyson College of Arts and Sciences announced that in Fall 2019, it will offer a new doctoral program in Clinical Psychology with a health care emphasis on its New York City campus. It will be the first such program in Manhattan.

“At Pace, we are continually updating our curriculum to meets the changing needs of the population and the work force,” said Provost Vanya Quiñones. “This new program addresses the latest in health care, providing an understanding of how health, lifestyles, and culture affect health and well-being. ​This program will prepare psychologists to partner with health care providers to address mind-body relationships for optimal health.”

SOE Launches MS in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) International

The Pace University School of Education is pleased to announce a new MS in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) International. This 30-credit program is being offered on both our NYC and Pleasantville campuses.

The TESOL International MS prepares teachers of English who want to work in an international setting, or with adult learners in the US. Students learn the theories, strategies, and methods for teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), so they can apply the knowledge, sociolinguistic contexts, and language development to instruction. This program gives special emphasis to the teaching of writing and the use of technology for today’s globalized classrooms. Students have a range of fieldwork experiences and hands-on practice teaching under the guidance of supervisors, faculty, and mentor-teachers.

“There is a growing trend among international universities, such as Europe and Asia, where English is being used as an instructional language,” said Acting Dean of Pace University’s School of Education Xiao-lei Wang, PhD. “By providing programs that support this need, we are at the forefront of the upward trend.”
