"STEM" refers to the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. STEM careers are highly sought after and can earn 26% more than non-STEM careers. Fresno Pacific University focuses on the integration of two or more of these silos in your courses to give you the most effective STEM education.
With numerous areas of study and opportunities within STEM, our graduates have gone onto careers in medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, pharmaceuticals and teaching just to name a few. FPU’s educational approach is collaborative and will engage students in a way that prepares them for success in STEM careers.
STEM Learning Communities (SLC) at FPU are intimate groups of likeminded students who will study together, learn together and create relationships that can last long after graduation. Participating in a SLC can give you an advantage in competitive fields such as pre-med, software engineering and pre-physical therapy.
You and your SLC will prepare for college level courses through a summer program which will allow you to meet your fellow students and start your learning online. Your SLC will be with you every step of the way your entire freshmen year. A faculty mentor and two upperclassmen will also work alongside you to ensure your success.
