About Great Basin College

Two generations of students—many of them now citizens and community leaders—have studied at Great Basin College since it opened in 1967. Students of the new millennium, like those who studied at GBC before them, have access to contemporary knowledge in classes and the benefit of instructors who truly cherish the learning process. They will also benefit from an excellent library, the most current computing facilities, and well-equipped laboratories. They participate in a time-honored schedule of traditional classes and in a rich array of short courses presented by active scholars from Nevada and the West. GBC students choose their courses from mathematics, science, business, and computing; humanities and social sciences; fine arts; career and technical education; health science; and community education. Full-time faculty members, part-time instructors, and support personnel are mentors, friends, and advisers of the 4,700 students who study throughout the academic year at GBC.
