Key Features

It is appealing to upper-level transfer students and particularly to adult students interested in the possibility of applying Experiential Learning credits towards their degree1. Sample concentrations are Communications and Literature; Criminal Justice and Sociology; and General Liberal Studies . The latter concentration is particularly flexible because it can be built around a theme of the student’s choosing, such as American studies; government; and philosophy and religious studies.

When choosing a concentration, the student of the Liberal Studies degree from Pace University works closely with advisers from the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences in order to construct a meaningful and coherent educational experience. Note that many courses applicable to the Liberal Studies major are offered online, though students are free to choose online or on-site ones.
