The Evergreen State College offers classes during evening hours and on weekends to provide opportunities for schedule-bound students and to supplement the full-time, daytime curriculum. Classes are offered in two formats: programs and courses.  Programs are the interdisciplinary classes that form the core of Evergreen's curriculum.  In Evening and Weekend Studies, a variety of 8 and 12-credit programs are available. Many of them are team-taught.  Programs may last one, two or even three quarters, building on themes developed in previous quarters.  Courses are more narrowly focused.  There are many 2 and 4-credit courses available and occasional 6-credit offerings.  Courses are typically taught by one faculty member.  Many students take courses to complement the interdisciplinary programs described above or in combination with individual study options.
