About Us

About the Graduate School

The Graduate School at Pacific supports and oversees Pacific’s approximately 1150 graduate students pursuing advanced degrees in more than 30 graduate programs on our Sacramento, San Francisco, and Stockton campuses. We offer graduate programs in business, education, engineering and computer science, health and natural sciences, law and public policy, music, and social sciences and humanities, leading to master’s and doctoral (PhD and EdD) degrees. Areas of responsibility include development of recruitment and marketing strategies, graduate admission services, graduate student support services, review of graduate policies, and support for new program development and launch. In addition, the Graduate School provides financial assistance to qualified students through its graduate assistantship program.

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 graduate students to create an environment congenial to advanced academic and professional study and to further scholarship and research.
