COLLEGE OF THE WEEK
THIS WEEK: UNIVERSITY of PACIFIC
Click here for Admissions Info
Click here for Tuition & Financial Aid Info
Acceptance Rate: 65%
DETAILS: University of the Pacific looks like more than 100 acres of New England plunked down in California wine country. With its stately combination of redbrick and ivy, it could be mistaken for an East Coast liberal arts college. But instead of a blanket of snow, Pacific is surrounded by the lush greenery of the San Joaquin Valley. On campus, this increasingly competitive bastion of learning offers its 3,600 undergrads a solid and diverse academic program and scores of things to do when not hitting the books.
With majestic evergreens and flowering trees, Pacific is home to six undergraduate schools and the College of the Pacific, the university’s liberal arts and sciences division. There is also a school of law in Sacramento and a superlative school of dentistry in San Francisco. A biological sciences building provides 54,000 square feet of space for the biological sciences program.
The university-wide general education program has three components: the Pacific seminars, the breadth program, and fundamental skills. All entering students must complete Pacific Seminar I (What Is a Good Society?) and Pacific Seminar II (Topical Seminars on a Good Society) in sequence during their first year, and Pacific Seminar III (The Ethics of Family, Work, and Citizenship) in their senior year. In addition to the seminars, students must complete six or nine courses in the breadth program and must demonstrate competence in writing, math, and reading. Strong departments abound in the schools of engineering, pharmacy, education, and business (with special programs in the arts/entertainment management and entrepreneurship). The sciences, English, communication, and international studies are also strong. A freshman says, “The best academic departments tend to be prepharmacy, predentistry, and the health, exercise, and sports sciences programs, because they do an astounding job of preparing students for their future professions.” Students may also design their own majors with faculty approval.
UOP Student Perspective: “The faculty members are very accessible and always willing to help."
