Unique and Distinctive Programs

The distinctiveness of graduate studies at Pacific lies in our academic programs, which emphasize creative scholarship and training of students in the principles and methods of research and professional competence. The goal of graduate education at the University is threefold: to excite the intellectual capacities of its students, to record and publish the products of intellectual inquiry, and to advance knowledge. To achieve this goal, the Graduate School encourages faculty to work closely with advanced students to create an environment congenial to advanced academic and professional study and to further scholarship and research.

University of the Pacific offers over 30 graduate programs on three campuses - Sacramento, San Francisco, Stockton - in business, education, engineering and computer science, health and natural sciences, law and public policy, music, and social sciences and humanities. Our programs lead to Master's and doctoral (PhD and EdD) degrees.
