Long Beach City College

Long Beach City College (LBCC) is a part of the California Community College System. One among the 106 community colleges in California, LBCC aims to impart high-quality educational programs and student-related services. It is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). LBCC started its service on the Woodrow Wilson High School campus in 1927. Due to a devastating earthquake in 1933, the school was flattened and classes had to be held in tents and outdoors. Later, in 1935, the college was relocated to its present Liberal Arts Campus, at Clark Avenue and Carson Street in Long Beach. In 1949, a new wing — the Pacific Coast Campus — was added on the Pacific Coast Highway, between Walnut and Orange streets. Today, Long Beach City College, with its two campuses, caters the diverse educational needs of the community. LBCC offers certification, associate and bachelor degrees, and honors programs in academic and vocational fields. Continuing education programs also are included in the curriculum. Evening classes are held at the Millikan Extension Campus. In addition, LBCC offers a senior student program, weekend classes and off-campus programs at various community locations. The major academic schools of the college are Business and Social Science, Creative Arts and Applied Science, Language Arts and Physical Education, Health and Science, Trade and Industrial Technologies, and Learning Resources, Teaching and Technologies. The libraries at the two campuses together hold more than 140,000 volumes. The Center for Learning Assistance Services strives to improve the students' academic potential through workshops, instruction courses and learning skills classes.
