Programs of Study

Earn your bachelor degree without moving or a lengthy commute!

Four universities provide in-demand degree programs on the Lower Columbia College campus, significantly enhancing the ability of local residents and LCC graduates to complete higher levels of education--in their own community.

Unlike students who move away to complete a four-year degree, local graduates are more likely to stay and work in the community. Professionals with advanced degrees, in addition to skilled workers in the vocational trades, help attract new business and industry. This benefits everyone.

The Lower Columbia region has one of the higher ratios of residents who have earned an associate degree in our state but one of the lowest percentages of residents who have completed a bachelor's degree.

Only 16% of Cowlitz and Wahkiakum county adults over age 25 have completed four or more years of college compared to a state average of 32%.

An on-campus regional University Center removes psychological, social, financial, and physical barriers and adds "stepping stones" to increasing academic and career options for students.
