Distinctive Program Elements

Take your career and your organization to the next level by learning in an intensely practical learning environment. 

Continue Your Life While You Earn a Master's Degree
Hybrid online and face-to-face format
Benerd in Sacramento's programs are designed for working professionals, and our students experience the best of both online and in person learning. We offer a combination of weekly online class sessions and a monthly in person residency experience at the Sacramento Campus. The flexible, hybrid delivery allows students to develop meaningful relationships and earn a degree while balancing personal and professional commitments.

Hands On, Project Based Curriculum
Develop hands-on skills to advance in your career 
The Master's concentration in Organizational Learning and Effectiveness is designed around a project-based curriculum, which requires real-world work in every course.  Rather than learning how to do something in the future, you will be learning by doing now, while you're in the program.  

Caring, Student Centered Environment
Professors who know your name 
At Pacific, the professors know your name and care about your success. Our faculty use their practitioner experience and relationships to help students develop skills and attain new positions. Our intimate learning community allows you to build relationships that are difficult to have in larger university environments.  

Doctoral Option
Complete both your master's and doctorate at Pacific 
Through our programs in Sacramento, you can complete both your master's and doctoral degree in 5-6 years.  Our Doctoral Program in Educational and Organizational Leadership provides a great option for completing your graduate study within the Pacific community.  Please see the Sacramento Doctoral Program page for more information.
