Seeking a Good Society at University of the Pacific
Diversity & Democracy: Civic Learning for Shared Futures
"What is a good society?" This question provides focus for general education at University of the Pacific, a private comprehensive university whose main campus is located in the ethnically diverse city of Stockton, California. Pacific's general education program probes the question through three required Pacific Seminars (PACS) that serve as bookends to students' undergraduate experiences. Students enroll in the writing-intensive, discussion-oriented PACS 1 and 2 sequence during their first year and take PACS 3, a culminating seminar on ethics, during their senior year. Together, these seminars provide context for students' learning at Pacific and for their future participation in the world at large.
