Opportunities in the Arts and Sciences

If you're pursuing a transfer degree you'll find many exciting opportunities to explore and develop passions for a full range of academic and artistic pursuits. Each year student talents are celebrated through a week-long Student Arts Week, which showcases craftsmanship in a variety of areas, from acting to music to art and more. Included in the events are concerts by the PC Instrumental Jazz and Vocal Ensembles, poetry and prose readings, a special student art show, a Junk Art Welding show, and an end-of-term concert by the music department.

Our journalism students work on a prize-winning student newspaper, The Buccaneer. They also regularly attend conferences to learn more about the art of journalism.

Students and community members can contribute original writing, photographs, music, and works of art to Peninsula College’s award-winning literary arts magazine, Tidepools. In 2014, Tidepools also introduced a Kindle version of the magazine. Cash prizes are awarded to first, second, and third place winners. All of the contributors are honored with a reception in the spring and give several readings in our local communities.

Numerous research and travel opportunities are available to our science students, who study and work in Keegan Hall, our Science and Technology Building. Research opportunities abound on the Peninsula. Outstanding outdoor resources, such as Olympic National Park and state and national forests, encourage scientific inquiry and lead to exciting projects. But this is only the start; many more opportunities exist and are waiting to be explored.

Under Guided Pathways, students interested in pursuing an Arts and Sciences transfer degree can choose an Area of Study in Arts & Communications, Social Science & Education, or Math & Science.
