WNC’s Douglas Campus offers a wide range of classes in the arts and sciences, technologies, and personal interest topics. Students can earn two-year associate degrees, numerous career-oriented certificates of achievement, dual high school/college credits, or take classes that transfer toward a baccalaureate degree. More than 400 students attend each semester, and the number of students continues to grow.

Located in Minden, Nevada, the Douglas Campus provides high quality education in a spectacular, pastoral setting that combines dramatic views of Job’s Peak with a favorable climate and unlimited outdoor recreation. Western Nevada College worked with the local community, Douglas County businesses, and state government to build the Douglas Campus. Over two million dollars were raised to construct the campus, which was built on ten acres donated by local businessman Don Bently. The campus opened August 21, 1997.
