What Our Students Say

  • Deepika Patel, Clinical Psychologist at Children's Hospital Colorado image

    Hands down, the faculty in the PsyD program is what makes the program unique and especial. From the day I interviewed to the day I graduated, my faculty mentors have had my back. I remember being drawn to their genuine love for teaching and passion for psychology. They shared their expertise in a way that was humble and open to discussion. They collaborated with students to better help the community.

  • Josh Sevier, Cochlear Implant Coordinator at the University of Nebraska image

    The accelerated AuD program at Pacific gave me the opportunity to learn crucial information for my career from fantastic professors, intern at a cochlear implant company as well as various CI programs, and practice audiology internationally. These experiences were in no doubt key in securing my first job following graduation and my advancement in the field.

  • Maddie Fry, Ambulatory Care Pharmacist at Mountain View Medical Center image

    The environment created within Pacific University's School of Pharmacy fosters long-lasting connections with students and provided me with the foundation I needed to reach my professional goals following Graduation. My relationships with faculty were personalized and always growth-focused which helped me reach my goals of residency training in both a PGY-1 and PGY-2 program.
