Graduate programs at Pacific health care rank second in nation

Pacific University has received top rankings for its health care graduate degree programs on graduateprograms.com.

Programs at the university’s Hillsboro campus ranked in second place with 4.44 out of five stars, calculated from student reviews submitted to the site in June.

Pacific beat out prestigious schools such as Harvard and Duke University. Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center was ranked number one.

Staff of SR Education Group, a Washington-based online education publisher, conducted the study of schools across the nation.

Overall, survey participants gave Pacific 4.58 stars for campus safety, 4.54 stars for career advising, 4.77 stars for the quality of instruction, 3.88 stars for student diversity, 4.5 stars for networking opportunities, 4.04 stars for student financial services and 4.75 stars for degree satisfaction.

“I strongly recommend Pacific for hardworking individuals who want a holistic approach to the healthcare industry,” wrote one reviewer who gave the program 4.43 out of five stars.

Cons listed for the graduate programs included a “very competitive application process” and a lack of financial aid options.
