Let us come to you

Serving communities across Northern and Southern California, our off-site cohort programs can bring the classroom to you—offering the opportunity for coworkers and groups to pursue a bachelor’s or master’s degree in a setting that’s close to home or work.

Since classes meet at night or on the weekends, students are able to pursue a B.A. or M.A. degree in while maintaining other commitments during the day. Blended cohort programs are also available, combining face-to-face instruction and online learning with the group support of a cohort model.

Students will have access to resources at both Pacific Oaks campuses as well as online support services. Students in our cohorts may also be able to take advantage of our Portfolio Development and Assessment process and turn practical work experience into credit towards a degree—saving time and money.
