University of the Pacific launches Bay Area's first music therapy program

University of the Pacific launches Bay Area's first music therapy program

Until now, becoming a music therapist in California has meant competing for limited seats each year in music therapy programs at University of the Pacific’s Stockton campus or Cal State Northridge, the only two institutions statewide that have been accredited by the American Music Therapy Association.

But starting next fall, Pacific will launch the Bay Area’s first music therapy program at the university’s new state-of-the-art San Francisco campus at Fifth and Mission. Applications are being accepted now for the Music Therapy Equivalency Program.

McGeorge students make law – and history

McGeorge students make law – and history

Revenge porn victims can get offensive material taken off the Internet using a pseudonym. Child care centers can consider job applicants' arrest warrants in hiring decisions. Prisoners can seek a new trial if the scientific evidence that convicted them is later discredited. And police will get training to recognize signs of elder abuse.

Californians won these new rights and protections thanks to four bills developed by students at Pacific McGeorge School of Law and signed into law by Gov. Brown.  

"It is rewarding to have our students not only studying the law on the books in the nation's most important state capital, but also helping to put those laws on the books," said Francis J. Mootz III, dean and professor of law at McGeorge.

Eibeck’s two-year term begins Oct. 24. She succeeds Pepperdine University president Andy Benton.

“California’s partnership with its private nonprofit colleges and universities has played a pivotal role in making our state a symbol of innovation across the globe,” Eibeck said. “Over the course of nearly 60 years, AICCU has made tremendous strides for higher education, and I look forward to the challenges and rewards of continuing that effort during my tenure.”
