In order to study for an undergraduate degree, students will need a high school diploma or GED (General Education Development).
4 years of study
In the US, students study a 4-year undergraduate program to earn a bachelor’s degree at a college or university.
As an international student at Pace, you will develop well-rounded critical thinking skills by studying a range of subjects including English, humanities, mathematics, and social and natural sciences during your first semesters. You will also enroll in our University 101 class to help them transition and learn how to succeed at Pace.
After successfully completing your general subject courses, you will begin taking courses associated with your major. Students usually choose their major based on what they love to study and what career they would like to pursue, with help from an academic advisor. Some arrive at Pace knowing exactly what they want to study. Others make that decision after they enroll and learn more about what drives them to succeed, usually by their second (or sophomore) year of study.
You will find that most bachelor’s degrees are classified as
- BA (Bachelor of Arts);
- BS (Bachelor of Science); or
- BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration).
The Bachelor of Arts degrees generally focus on arts, humanities, and social sciences, while the Bachelor of Science degrees are concentrated in the natural sciences, computer science and information systems, mathematics, and physics. The Bachelor of Business Administration degree is specific to business majors.
