Pacific Oaks College provides education to adult students who are seeking degree completion. The degree programs span from Early Childhood Education to Human Development. It is a principled educational environment with a unique curricular framework that emphasizes anti-bias education and multicultural understanding. Whether learning online or in the classroom, this school helps adult students obtain their educational goals. To be clear, it is an expensive school with not very many scholarship options. What it lacks in funding it makes up for in equipping students with a goal of seeking social justice in their perspective fields. Overall, Pacific Oaks provides a relevant education but is a bit on the pricey side.

I love this college! The program I am enrolled in is completely online and flexible for my lifestyle. My professors are knowledgeable and easily accessible, they are always willing to answer questions. The curriculum is challenging and exciting, I am constantly learning something new. Class sizes are small enough to foster meaningful relationships between professors and students.
