Fresno Pacific University

Introduction

Welcome to Fresno Pacific University! Here we challenge students to think critically, excel academically and live ethically. Our core values and commitment to building character spring from a distinctively Christian perspective. Fresno Pacific prepares people to lead in professions, serve society and transform culture. We are the Central Valley's only accredited Christian university, offering leading academic programs, and ethical and spiritual development through traditional bachelor's degree, adult degree completion, master's, certificate and credentialing programs. We are accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). Learning is a lifelong journey, and our undergraduate, graduate and professional development programs provide direction and build competence. The curriculum is organized into four schools: Business, Education, Natural Sciences, and Humanities, Religion and Social Sciences. While each is centered on different disciplines, all are grounded in the same values. Whether fresh out of high school or juggling family and work responsibilities, those who study here examine assumptions and sharpen critical thinking, reasoning, and leadership skills. At the same time our Christian faculty mentor students, teaching them how to think, not telling them what to think. Through this process, our graduates learn and achieve more than they ever imagined possible--academically, personally and professionally. We measure our success by the accomplishments of our graduates. They become leaders at work, in church, and in the world.
