Welcome to the University of the Pacific, Office of Research and Graduate Studies (RGS). RGS manages Graduate Studies and Research & Scholarships/Sponsored Programs.

The Graduate Studies office is responsible for the administration of graduate degree programs including Master's (M.M., M.Ed., M.A., MBA and M.S.), Educational Specialist in School Psychology (Ed.S.), and Doctoral (D.P.T., Ed.D. and Ph.D.) degrees in over 15 departments in seven schools and colleges.

It is our goal to provide helpful, courteous service and up-to-date information to prospective and current graduate students, advisors, faculty, and the University community.

At the University of the Pacific, research and scholarship strengthen the student-centered environment and invigorate intellectual inquiry across the campus. The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) administers grants and contracts, internal awards, and the Institutional Review Board.
