See environmental studies for more about how this subject is taught at Evergreen.

Evergreen provides many opportunities for in-depth learning through fieldwork. In social sciences such as psychology, sociology, or anthropology, you can learn to be a participant observer in the process of conducting ethnographic interviews. In the sciences, through extended time in the field you can learn to conduct field science in ecology at the advanced undergraduate level. Trips to local and remote locations provide the backdrop for independent and group research projects in a number of environmental studies fields.
