B.A. Pathways to Graduate School Programs

Earning your bachelor’s degree is a major life milestone, but your education doesn’t have to stop there. At Pacific Oaks College, we offer two great opportunities that can save you time and money if you plan to continue your education after earning your B.A. degree.

B.A. to M.A. “Excel-lerate” Program

Save time and money and reach your educational goal sooner.

The “Excel-lerate” program provides qualified Pacific Oaks College undergraduate students the opportunity to get a jumpstart on their master’s degree at Pacific Oaks by completing up to two (2) graduate-level courses during their B.A. program—while still paying the lower undergraduate tuition rate. Upon acceptance into a master’s program, students may have the completed graduate-level courses applied toward their master’s degree, putting them six credit hours closer to their M.A.

B.A. to J.D. Pathway Program

A quicker way to achieve your legal degree.

Pacific Oaks College has a long held commitment to educating advocates who promote social justice and equality in classrooms, organizations, and communities. Now, students have the opportunity to pair a legal education with their bachelor’s degree from Pacific Oaks and prepare for careers in law, policymaking, government, and so much more.

With Pacific Oaks’ B.A. to J.D. Pathway, you can take up to three graduate level legal courses during your bachelor’s program that count toward the completion of your B.A. degree as well as your J.D. (Juris Doctorate) degree at The Santa Barbara & Ventura Colleges of Law (COL).
