Learning Communities

Tillamook Bay Community College is a Guided Pathways school!

 

Find Your Passion

Deciding what to study can be tough. Sometimes you know the field you want to work in. Other times you may only know that you want to work with people, outside in nature, or even that you enjoy math. TBCC has seven Learning Communities that can help you find inspiration and the educational path that is right for you.
 

Our Goal is To Help You Get on a Path to Success

Our goal is to help you explore your educational pathway options, get on an educational path you will enjoy that will lead to the type of work you hope to do, then support you to learn and ensure you are able to complete the path you have chosen. The next step is yours to either enter or advance in the workforce or continue on and transfer to a university. Our goal is to do this for 100% of our students.
Take a look. What sounds inspiring?

What if I’m still not sure?

We can help! Meeting with a Career Education Advisor is a great way to help you narrow in on the specific program that’s best for you. You can also do some career exploration to help you find what is of interest to you. Students are allowed to be “UNDECIDED” for 1-2 terms.
