Pacifica Graduate Institute traces its roots to the Isla Vista Human Relations Center which was established in 1971 by Regents of the University of California. This led to the creation of the Human Relations Center which started offering a certificate course in counseling skills in 1976. This program became a part of Human Relations Institute, and in 1989, it came to be known as the Pacifica Graduate Institute. Popularly referred to as just Pacifica, the institute operates a 35-acre Ladera Lane Campus, and a 13-acre Lambert Road Campus in Carpinteria, California.
Pacifica Graduate Institute grants the Master of Arts degree in depth psychology, counseling psychology, mythological studies, and humanities. Students can also opt for doctorate degree programs in clinical psychology, psychotherapy, depth psychology, and mythological studies.
Pacifica students are offered a variety of support services like housing facilities, disability services, and academic and career counseling. Financial aid is provided through Federal Stafford loans, Grad-PLUS loans, and alternative private student loans. In addition, deserving candidates are awarded the Pacifica Scholarship, Segal AmeriCorps Matching Scholarship, and Yellow Ribbon Scholarship.
