Academics | The Evergreen State College


At Evergreen, you’ll go beyond the ordinary and experience your education the way you imagine.

Evergreen lets you set your own academic goals and plan your pathway to a Bachelor of Arts or Science. You’ll graduate with a new way of looking at the world—and the skills to help solve its problems.

Get with the Program

You won’t sign up for multiple classes each quarter. Instead, you’ll enroll in a single interdisciplinary program that incorporates multiple fields of study. Our integrated approach encourages you to declare independence from majors.

Discover what you can study here.

Plan Your Path

You’ll design your own pathway to a degree, and your Academic Statement acts as your blueprint. You’ll use this document to record your achievements and develop an area of emphasis, our answer to the traditional college major. We’ll help you along the way.

Better Than a Letter

At most schools, you are what your grade-point average says you are. At Evergreen, you’re a person whose academic work tells a rich, dynamic story. Detailed evaluations highlight your work and provide specific examples of your progress. This level of detail goes far beyond a simple letter or number.
