Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Political Science, BA

Do people admire your leadership and your passion for politics? Imagine applying your talents into the ideologically-charged issues of today and making a change for tomorrow. Political science is an in-depth study of the processes and principles of governmental structures. Our program engages you in a living discipline that extends far beyond classroom walls. You are exposed not only to political theory but also to real-world experiences—internships, interaction with real policy makers, and access to primary sources of international news. You will develop critical insight skills and contacts in real- world organizations.

As a student in Pace’s Political Science program, you can participate in our internationally-ranked Model United Nations debate team, which has placed among the top ranking U.S. teams almost every year.

An opportunity to enroll in an accelerated dual-degree program – B.A. Political Science/M.P.A. Public Administration or B.A. Political Science/J.D. Law - is available to qualified majors. Interested students must meet with a departmental advisor early in their first year of study.
