Academic Transfer degrees - 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.

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.

Back in the World

November 7, 8, 14, & 15
Friday, Saturday, 7:30 p.m.

“Back in the World” is a world premiere musical about soldiers returning home from war. Composed by GHC graduate Alex Eddy, who has a rich history in the Bishop Center as a musician, playwright, actor and conductor, and with lyrics by GHC faculty member and frequent Bishop playwright Lynne Lerych, “Back in the World” explores the plight of soldiers returning from war. This sad, angry, funny, and ultimately uplifting story focuses on the struggles veterans face when they have come home, but they are not really home.
