Pagan is an umbrella term that encompasses Wicca. Basically, Wicca is to Paganism what Baptists are to Christianity. It's just a "denomination" of Paganism. Paganism covers a broad range or religions, though, including Wicca, Druidism, Shamanism, Asatru, etc. It's really hard to give a generalization of Pagan beliefs, because they can vary so greatly. Though some example of beliefs held by Pagans (not all) are things like: polytheism- the belief in more than one supreme being, reverence for nature, and reincarnation. Also, some Pagans practice witchcraft, some do not, though one does not have to be Pagan to be a witch.
If you're interested in learning more about Paganism, there are several groups on here (including mine) that I'm sure would be happy to have you join, even just to learn about the beliefs.
