Founded in 1947, Pierce College offers more than 80 academic disciplines and 132 degree and certificate programs. Located on 426 acres in the western San Fernando Valley, Pierce College has combined its 70-year agricultural college heritage with the need for technology-focused classes.
Pierce still maintains large sections of tillable and range land preserved as an enclave within a suburban environment. The 226-acre farm spans the west side of campus, featuring an equestrian center and sustaining small herds of cattle, sheep, and goats.
Over the last decade, the college’s construction program funded by four Los Angeles voter bonds has revitalized the campus, enlarging and modernizing the capacity of the physical plant, and restoring its original mission-style grace.
