What Can I Study?

Academic Transfer @ GHC - This College is a great place to start the first two years of a bachelor’s degree program. You can earn a two-year Associate degree suitable for transfer to any public four-year school in Washington State or one tailored to the transfer school of your choice. For some programs, you can even complete your bachelor's degree right here on the GHC Campus.  

Workforce Preparation and Training - Our Workforce Training programs can prepare you to enter the world of work, or upgrade your job skills, after just one or two years. In some cases, the training time is even shorter. And, depending on the program, you can earn a college degree, a certificate, or both.

Pre-College Programs - Our Pre-College programs can help you work toward earning your GED® or high school diploma (HS21+), bring your reading, writing, and mathematics skills up to college level, or improve your English skills in our English as a Second Language (ESL) program. Call 538-4167 to Get Started.

Continuing Education - offers a wide variety of subject matter and skills training opportunities that range from single day seminars to 2-6 week classes. Programming is offered throughout Grays Harbor and Pacific counties. It’s a great way to meet new people and energize your mind. Best of all, there are no tests – only the pleasure of learning and exploring! View the Continuing Education Course Catalog for current offerings and to register Online.
