In 2011, Peninsula College celebrated 50 years of service. The college was founded in 1961 because a group of local citizens wanted to be able to continue their educations without having to travel great distances to college centers in Bremerton or across Puget Sound. Innovative. Student-centered. Outstanding, caring faculty. Small, face-to-face classes. Remarkable new learning facilities featuring striking architecture and advanced classrooms and equipment. International learning experiences. Community involvement. Championship athletic teams.
The Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Management (BAS) program at Peninsula College is designed to enable applicants with AAS, AAS-T, AA, and AS degrees to combine their lower-division technical or transfer preparation, regardless of the discipline, with upper-division credits in business management, resulting in a practical, application-oriented, four-year degree. The Peninsula College Bachelor degree is designed with academic rigor enabling graduates to apply directly to Master of Business Administration (MBA) and other graduate programs.

The Olympic Peninsula provides an extraordinary setting for Peninsula College. Our close proximity to mountains, forests, and the ocean provides you with opportunities to participate in outdoor learning and recreational experiences that are unequaled at other college locations in Washingtonâ€™s community and technical college system. The services and activities of Port Angeles, the largest city on the North Olympic Peninsula, are easily accessible, and students and community members alike enjoy the opportunity to work together on projects and special festivals that involve both groups. Major cities, such as Seattle and Victoria, British Columbia, are only a few hours away, while major Native American museums and a United Nations World Heritage Siteâ€”Olympic National Parkâ€”are practically on our doorstep.
