University of the Pacific celebrated June 26 the expansion of its Sacramento campus, longtime home of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law, into a multidisciplinary center that will educate the professionals California needs in the decades ahead.

Five new degrees will be rolled out over the next two years: Master of Business Administration; Doctor of Education; Master of Public Policy; Master of Physician Assistant Studies; and Master of Public Administration.

“This is a watershed moment for our university,” said Pamela A.
