Our mission is to provide aspiring artists and graphic designers with intensive, integrative, relevant and rewarding educational programs of excellent quality in a personal, supportive and collaborative environment.

The Major

With a BFA degree from Pacific, you will develop the conceptual, perceptual, technical and professional skills necessary to be a practicing artist who thinks critically and historically, communicates effectively, and acts responsibly in our global society. 

The Experience

By performing a variety of outreach services both in the Stockton community and abroad, you will produce a legacy of community awareness and pride. Our students regularly accept graduate appointments and professional positions in their respective fields.
