Student & Graduate Reviews

4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

Absolutely a great program. Lots of opportunities to get involved beyond the classroom and the faculty support is unmatched.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The biggest pro is the tremendous amount of support. Everyone, including professors and peers, are there to help. There is absolutely no feeling of competition between students. There really are not any cons, besides the fact that I would like to receive other sources of financial aid.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

Pacific University has offered me the absolute best opportunity to receive a rewarding education. The help and support the faculty provides goes beyond my expectations, and they have proved to be excellent educators. I am surrounded by a well-diversified, friendly, and intelligent group of classmates, in addition to lush forests that give me a chance to relax from studying. Although the physician assistant program is very rigorous, my decision to attend Pacific University has been ultimately fulfilling!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

I have 1 pro and 1 con. Pro: The program is progressive and the model is integrative. Achieving a Masters in Counseling will enable me to empower and offer tools for mental health healing to individuals who are suffering. Con: The U.S. doesn't believe that education is a priority so no matter where I go, being a graduate student will put me in debt, and this is an absolute travesty.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

Pacific U has an amazing sense of community and family. Students and faculty are always available for study groups and assistance.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

My graduate program is rigorous, but I feel better prepared for challenges in the future and know that the education I received will far exceed others in my field. My preceptors are often impressed with my fund of knowledge and pre-existing experience. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of my graduate program.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

This program has many different opportunities for learning in diverse parts of the country and abroad.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

The support surrounding social work students at Pacific University is phenomenal. I love knowing my professors on a first name basis, as well as the closeness of my graduating class. A large part of my success in this program is derived from the large network I have been able to build through my education and experiences at Pacific.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Pacific University's School of Pharmacy is a year-round program, which allows students to earn their PharmD in three years instead of four. Though they are a smaller institution, where they are known they are admired. They use a modified block system, there is a final every two weeks and students must earn a 90 percent in order to pass the exam and the class. As a private institution, they are a bit more money up front compared to a public graduate program.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2013

The Pacific University School of Occupational Therapy is a fantastic program that I know will serve me well once I enter the workforce. I benefit from the small class sizes, hands on classroom work, and tremendous support from the faculty. The program is located on the Pacific University Health Professions Campus, which is very accessible by public transportation. And the proximity of other health profession students gives us an opportunity to work collaboratively as interdisciplinary teams. I highly recommend Pacific.
