Undergraduate Curriculum

Undergraduate students on Pacific University's Forest Grove Campus benefit from caring faculty, stimulating classes, intellectual challenges, and a choice of more than 50 academic majors and numerous distinct minor programs.

Small classes and close faculty-student relationships create an inherently personal education. Faculty members know their students by name and provide substantial individual guidance and feedback in and out of the classroom.

A rigorous core curriculum provides the crucial foundation for our four and five-year undergraduate degree programs and is designed to best prepare students for life-long success in our increasingly complex world; academic programs provide rich options for developing specialized knowledge and skills. Mentored by a faculty advisor, students synthesize their learning and demonstrate their achievement through a rigorous senior project.

Pacific students don’t just learn the facts; they learn how to learn, as well as how to apply what they learn to new situations.
