Students can now major in graphic design and data science, earn a teaching license while studying music education, and minor in four new areas of study while pursuing their bachelor's degree: social innovation and leadership, social equity and social change, psychological health and well-being, and cultural awareness and knowledge.

Graphic design is the latest offering of the university's Media Arts Department. Students will learn to tell compelling stories and engage with the world through design and illustration. A major or minor in graphic design helps students develop and refine their own artistic and professional sensibilities using industry-standard tools and principles.

Students earning a bachelor of science in data science through Pacific's Mathematics & Computer Science Department will learn the foundations of data curation, mathematical analysis, computational thinking, statistical thinking, data modeling, communication and visualization, and understanding ethical implications...

Pacific University is a diverse learning community, where students thrive in a personal academic environment. Students can pursue more than 65 undergraduate areas of study in the liberal arts and sciences, business, education, health professions and optometry. Pacific is currently ranked the No. 1 private research university in the Pacific Northwest and is also committed to civic engagement, sustainability and interprofessional education as part of its core teaching philosophy.
