General Education Program
“After taking some of these general education courses, I have found new and unexpected interests. I found that I love to learn not only how the world works, but also how belief systems direct people’s perceptions of the world, as I explored in my religious studies classes; or how the knowledge people gain impacts their choices, as I discussed with my Pacific Seminar I class; or how the arts confound and beautify a mechanistic and scientific perception of the world, as I learned in my art history and music appreciation class. The topics I explored in each of my classes helped me cultivate a larger depth and scope of knowledge.”
Biological Sciences major
At Pacific, the general education program exposes students to areas of study outside of their major, and they develop essential knowledge and skills that are transferable to other courses at Pacific as well as to their personal and public lives. The exposure to different areas of study and the development of intellectual and practical skills promote the mission of Pacific’s general education: self-understanding, citizenship, and career development.
One goal of Pacific’s general education program is fundamentally personal: to enrich students’ self-understanding and expand their interests in preparation for a fulfilling life. Students are exposed to new intellectual, moral, spiritual, and aesthetic possibilities. Through the interaction with others from different backgrounds and the study of different disciplines, students come to understand who they are and the sources of their beliefs. They thus gain the skills to identify, express and analyze their beliefs and to fashion a philosophy of life that can guide them in their future endeavors. Students may also find life-long pleasure in learning, self-reflection, and conversation.
Another goal is to produce engaged and informed citizens who advance a democratic society by contributing to political and civil life and by committing themselves to the service of others. General education fosters the skills to evaluate complex social and political issues and teaches the moral and political grounds that inform political action and service in a democracy. The health of a society depends on informed and active citizens who can balance the public good and self-interest.
Finally, the general education program prepares students to enter professional life by developing practical skills that are valuable to employers and essential to civil society. These skills include the abilities to express oneself clearly and cogently in writing and orally, to be diligent and careful in the preparation of one’s work, to interpret and evaluate information, to think creatively in order to solve problems, to work independently as well as collegially in groups with a sensitivity toward cultural differences, to use technology, and to treat others ethically in their professional interactions.
Pacific’s general education mission of fostering self-understanding, citizenship and career development is advanced by the completion of three Pacific Seminars and the breadth program courses, all of which introduce students to the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and arts and which develop the following intellectual and practical skills:
- written communication
- oral communication
- critical thinking
- research skills
- quantitative thinking
- cross-cultural awareness
- ethical reasoning
- civic responsibility
- aesthetic judgment
The course of study described below is required for all students completing a bachelor’s degree or a first professional degree from the University. Students must complete three Pacific Seminars and a breadth program that ranges from six to nine courses, depending on the academic unit. Students must also satisfy the fundamental skills requirements in writing, reading, and quantitative analysis.
The Pacific Seminars
The Pacific Seminars are the distinctive feature of Pacific’s general education program and have received national attention by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). They focus on the question, “What is a Good Society”? The seminars are taught by faculty from all academic divisions (humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences) and academic units. PACS 001 and are taken in sequence during the first year, and Pacific is one of only a few universities in the nation that has a full first-year general education experience. PACS 003 is taken in the senior year and serves as a culminating general education experience.
Pacific Seminar 1: What is a Good Society?
During the first semester of the freshman year, all students must take Pacific Seminar I: What is a Good Society? The course is a broad introduction to the fundamental issues of a Good Society, such as the purposes of education, the role of the family, the nature of work and the economy, the value of the arts and sciences, the purposes of law and government, the rights and responsibilities of the citizen, and the place of humans in the natural world. Pacific Seminar I is a shared intellectual experience since there is a common course syllabus and a common reader. The reader has materials from the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, and so the course also serves as an introduction to the different disciplines as a 'living university catalog.' Students meet in small sections to discuss the readings and issues and develop their writing, critical thinking and reading, and oral presentation skills. Students entering Pacific as freshmen must pass PACS 001 and PACS 002. There are no substitutions. The Pacific Seminars cannot be repeated if students earn a "D" or higher.
Pacific Seminar 2: Topical Seminars
In the second semester of the freshman year, all students must take a Pacific 2 Topical Seminar. Whereas Pacific Seminar I introduces students to aspects of the issue of a Good Society, the Pacific II topical seminars focus in depth on a particular aspect of this issue. Some potential seminars are "War, Nonviolence, and Pacifism," "Controversial Issues in Modern Science and Medicine," "Perilous Earth: Natural Disasters in Human History," and "Conflict Management: Interpersonal to International Solutions." The seminars are offered from virtually every department and academic unit on campus and will be so of the most innovative courses at Pacific. During registration, students will list their top ten choices of topical seminars and be placed in one of them. Students meet in small sections to discuss the readings and issues and develop their writing, critical thinking and reading, and oral presentation skills. Students entering Pacific as freshmen must pass PACS 001 and PACS 002. There are no substitutions. The Pacific Seminars cannot be repeated if students earn a "D" or higher.
Pacific Seminar 3: What is an Ethical Life?
In their senior year, students take Pacific Seminar 3: What is an Ethical Life? This course is a culminating general education experience. Students learn about and analyze ethical concepts and theories to understand better their moral development, moral values, and behavior. Students will analyze ethical issues in the contexts of family and friends, work, and political life. Faculty use narrative media-such as film, biography, and literature-to illustrate ethical issues. Students write an ethical autobiography to reflect back on their ethical development and anticipate ethical decisions they may encounter in their future roles as family members and friends, as part of the workforce, and as citizens and members of local, national, and global communities. Senior Standing.
Pacific Seminar Exemption Policy: All students must take PACS 003; however, students who enter the University having completed 28 or more units of transferable, classroom college level work that appear on a college transcript are exempt from taking PACS 001 and PACS 002. Freshman students admitted to the honors program are required to complete PACS 001 and PACS 002 regardless of the number of college units completed.
Students are not allowed to drop PACS 001 or PACS 002 for any reason, even if they plan to transfer to another college or university. Freshmen entering in the spring semester begin the Pacific Seminar sequence the following fall. Students who would benefit from special attention to reading and writing skills are deferred from the Pacific Seminar sequence until their sophomore year.
Students must pass PACS 001 (“D” or better) in order to take PACS 002. Students who have an Incomplete (I grade) in PACS 001 must clear the “I” before the first Friday of the Spring semester in order to take PACS 002. Students can repeat a different PACS 002 course.
The Pacific Seminars cannot be repeated if students earn a “D” or higher.
The Pacific Seminars must be taken for a letter grade.
All transfer and post baccalaureate students must pass PACS 003.
The Breadth Program 6-9 Courses
(3 or 4 Units Each)
The general education program beyond the Pacific Seminars provides students with considerable choice but within a framework that ensures they gain essential knowledge and skills. With the help of their advisors, students choose courses in the breadth program that interest them or that relate to other courses in their planned course of study.
The Breadth Program requirements vary from School or College (see the table following the listing of the categories and sub-categories). All students must complete at least six courses, two from each of the three main categories listed below (I, II, and III); however, only one class can come from each subcategory or area (A, B, and C), and all students must complete a course in area III-A and in area III-B.
Students can satisfy subcategory IIIC by taking a second course in subcategory IIIA.
Students can take a maximum of two courses from a single department (as defined by subject code, e.g., HIST or ENGL or MPER) to satisfy the breadth requirement; however, there is an exception for area IIC since students may take three 1-unit courses in the same discipline of applied music or dance to meet the requirement. Courses in the breadth program component of the general education program normally have a value of three or four units.
Independent study courses cannot be used to satisfy general education requirements. Catalog year determines degree requirements; general education courses and transfer course articulations are subject to change. It is the responsibility of the student to be informed of any general education or transfer course articulation changes.
The structure of the breadth program is as follows:
|Social and Behavioral Sciences|
|Arts and Humanities|
|Natural Sciences and Mathematics|
or a second IIIA Natural Sciences course
The titles of the courses themselves are listed by category and subcategory later in this section.
The breadth program requirements for each School or College are listed in the table below. Contact the General Education Unit Coordinator in your unit for more information.

Students can satisfy GE requirements with a 4 or higher for Advanced Placement and a 5 or higher for Higher Level International Baccalaureate. A maximum of 28 units total from Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate DANTES and/or CLEP test results may be applied toward a Pacific degree, including General Education breadth areas.
As part of the general education program, all students are required to be competent in three fundamental skills at entrance: reading, writing and quantitative analysis. Students may demonstrate competence in these skills in one of three ways:
- Completion of approved, college-level courses at an accredited college or university;
- Satisfactory performance on an approved, nationally administered examination; or
- Satisfactory performance on examinations given at Pacific during new student orientation or shortly thereafter.
Students can meet these fundamental skills by taking course work to improve their skills as follows:
- Currently, the Educational Resource Center and its constituents are piloting changes to the reading and writing courses for traditional freshmen and transfer students. Beginning Fall 2013, a combination reading/writing course, PACS 093 taken in conjunction with PACS 001, or WRIT 093Z, will fulfill both the reading and writing requirement.
- To show competency in quantitative analysis (math), students must successfully complete MATH 005 (Intermediate Algebra), MATH 035 (Statistics) or PSYC 103 with a grade of C- or better, or complete an equivalent course from another accredited college or university with a grade of C or better during the first full year of study including summer sessions.
- To show competency in writing, students must successfully complete WRIT 021 with a grade of C- or better or complete an equivalent course from another accredited college or university with a grade of C or better during the first full year of study including summer sessions.
- To show competency in reading, students must successfully complete READ 031 or READ 051 with a grade of C- or better during the first full year of study including summer sessions or complete an equivalent course from another accredited college or university with a grade of C or better.
- Successful completion of course work in quantitative analysis, writing and reading at Pacific requires a grade of C- or better. Course work taken in quantitative analysis, writing, or reading at another college or university requires a grade of C or better and must be approved in advance via a Transfer Course Approval form.
- Failure to make progress toward fulfilling Pacific’s fundamental skills requirements during the first year of study is grounds for being placed on academic probation. Failure to satisfy the fundamental skills requirements (as summarized in the three points above) by the end of four semesters of full-time study at the University is grounds for academic disqualification.
- Students with documented disabilities that directly affect their mastery of these skills or students concurrently enrolled in an approved English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) Program of instruction in reading and writing may seek a written extension of the deadline for demonstrating competence.
- The quantitative analysis (math), writing, and reading requirements must be met before a student graduates with a bachelor’s degree or a first professional degree.
Requirements for Transfer Students
Fundamental Skills Requirements
Fundamental skills requirements for transfer students include reading, writing and quantitative analysis (math). Students may demonstrate competence in these skills in one of three ways:
- Completion of approved, college-level courses at an accredited college or university;
- Satisfactory performance on an approved, nationally administered examination; or
- Satisfactory performance on examinations given at Pacific during new student orientation or shortly thereafter. Placement tests taken by transfer students at their previous institution do not replace Pacific’s assessments.
Breadth Program Requirements
Transfer students who completed the IGETC or CSU Breadth General Education requirements at a California Community College prior to enrolling at Pacific satisfy Pacific's General Education program, though they must complete PACS 003. Students who have not completed the IGETC or CSU Breadth General Education requirements have their courses articulated for general education credit on a course by course basis. General education courses taken by these students at their previous institutions which are of the same quality and equivalency as courses offered at Pacific do apply for breadth program requirements at Pacific.
Pacific Seminar Requirements
Transfer students who have completed 28 or more units of transferable, classroom college work that appear on a transcript must only complete PACS 003.
Individual schools and colleges may impose general education graduation requirements, including skills requirements, beyond the University’s general education program.
Transfer students who entered the University prior to the 1993-94 academic year and who desire an evaluation of their records in regard to general education should contact the Office of the Registrar.
Requirements for Readmitted Students
Students who originally enter Pacific as a Freshman are required to complete PACS 001 and PACS 002, even if the student chooses to leave Pacific and applies for readmission at a later date. A student is held to the rules based on their original admission regardless of readmission at a later point in time. A freshman who leaves the university and applies for readmission later is not then treated as a transfer student, regardless of how many units the student is able to transfer to Pacific as part of their readmission. Students who withdraw from Pacific and complete either the CSU Breadth or UC IGETC General Education Program at a California community college will be exempt from PACS 001 and PACS 002, but they are required to complete PACS 003.”
Requirements for Post Baccalaureate Students
Students who completed a Bachelor’s degree elsewhere and who are seeking an additional Bachelor’s degree at Pacific must only complete PACS 003 to satisfy the GE and Fundamental Skills requirements.
Breadth Course List for General Education
The courses listed below are approved as counting toward the breadth program requirement in each of the nine areas of the program. Students who satisfy II-C with one-unit dance or applied music courses must complete three courses in the same discipline. Although not always listed here, some “special topics’’ courses taught during a particular term may also be approved for general education. Some professional schools on campus have more restrictive requirements under which only some of the courses listed in each area count for students pursuing those professional programs.
The listing of general education courses being taught during a particular term can be found using the search for class by attribute function on Inside Pacific.
Catalog year determines degree requirements; however, general education (GE) courses and transfer course articulations are subject to change. It is the responsibility of the student to be informed of any GE or transfer course articulation changes.
