School of Learning & Teaching
The Pacific University College of Education offers dynamic undergraduate and graduate teaching programs that will help you transform the lives of your students, because everything begins with a great teacher.
At Pacific University, our goal is to prepare teachers who promote and nurture their students’ intellectual, ethical, social and emotional growth. Our students become teachers who are culturally competent and focused on student-centered classrooms.
We offer paths to initial teaching licensure, advanced degrees and endorsements for current teachers, and degrees for those passionate about expanding the field of education.
Our students enjoy a close cohort of peers who support one another throughout the learning process. Our students study on campuses in Forest Grove, Eugene and Woodburn, as well as through programs embedded in school districts throughout Oregon.
Real-world experience is a cornerstone of our teacher preparation programs. Our students have a myriad of opportunities to practice their skills, from our preK-2 Early Learning Community on the Forest Grove Campus to local schools to international placements.
Aurea and Leslie Lomeli each earned a bachelor of education in teaching and English language learning May 18 at Pacific's Commencement after studying side by side at the Woodburn Campus.
The grant will help expand the university's highly successful and innovative teaching licensure program.
