OC will offer new program
Olympic College will now offer a bachelor’s degree of Applied Science (BAS) program in Computer Information Systems (CIS) made possible through a $200,000 grant.
The goal is to build Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) pathways from K-12 to the baccalaureate level. The funds will allow teachers from local high schools to gather with college faulty to ensure the curriculum is seamless.
“We’ve enjoyed excellent community support from employers and school district partners and I look forward to expanding these partnerships,” said Olympic College’s Vice President of Instruction Mary Garguile. “Increasing baccalaureate program options is one of the college’s strategic goals.”
The grant comes from the recently passed Washington State Legislature Senate Bill 5624. The bill aligns high demand secondary STEM or career and technical programs with applied baccalaureate programs.
