Evergreen: a very different place to learn
Majors? Not here. Academic Pathways put the power in your hands: Instead of choosing a predefined major, you design an academic pathway that is unique to your interests and development during college. Evergreen faculty will help you create your pathway.
Classes? Not here. Interdisciplinary Programs reflect the real world: You’ll begin by selecting a program, which typically represents a full-time course load and may last up to three quarters. With faculty approval and oversight, you can also engage in individual study or research in subjects that build upon your prior academic work or you can take more narrowly focused courses to complement programs and individual study.
Programs may include lectures, labs, readings, seminars, field study and research projects. The faculty members who teach programs connect different academic disciplines around a unifying theme. Each program is developed with a learning community in mind.
Grades? Not here. Narrative Evaluations are more complete: Your learning and academic progress are assessed in narrative evaluations rather than grades.
All your classes, teachers and classmates are in one place. Instead of taking an assortment of different, often unrelated courses, you learn about the interconnections of subjects in the real world. That's Evergreen.
