WWU to offer bachelor’s degrees on Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas

POULSBO, Kitsap County — Western Washington University is teaming up with Olympic College to offer bachelor’s degrees on the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas.

Western plans to locate tenure-track faculty in Poulsbo to teach undergraduate and graduate level classes.

The university has taught classes in the area before — in environmental science and education — but the partnership with Olympic College will expand the offerings.

The school will begin offering business classes on the peninsulas in 2014.

WWU faculty will teach in Port Angeles, Bremerton, Everett and Poulsbo. The university also is partnering with Peninsula and Everett community colleges, as well as the Pacific National Laboratory’s Marine Science Laboratory in Sequim, Clallam County.
