The Pacific University College of Education offers dynamic, hands-on undergraduate and graduate programs. We are a community of scholars and practitioners dedicated to learning experiences that are real-world focused, rigorous, practice-based, and personally meaningful.

Our School of Learning & Teaching provides programs for future and current teachers to earn licensure, endorsements, advanced degrees, as well as to expand their expertise and become experts in education. 

The School of Communication Sciences & Disorders prepares and supports speech-language pathologists who work in schools, healthcare, and numerous other community settings.

Our graduates are profoundly skilled at what they do and are prepared to work in education and health settings to positively contribute to the lives of their students, colleagues and clients.
