    Pacific is unique in higher education given our wide range of high qualityprogramsand varied disciplines across nine colleges and schools in a smaller, more personal environment. The distinctive learning opportunities that this provides will form a base on which we grow our reputation.

    University of the Pacific is a nationally ranked university with three distinct campuses united under one common goal: to educate and prepare the leaders of tomorrow through intensive academic study, experiential learning, and service to the community. Our Stockton campus is home to seven schools and colleges, with more than 80 majors and programs of study. Pacific also has the McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento and the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. Undergraduates make up approximately half of the total University population. Pacific students benefit from small class sizes with an average class size of 19 and student-faculty ratio of 14:1. While 87 percent of Pacific students come from California, 35 other states and 25 foreign countries are also represented.
