Evening & Weekend Studies

EWS 2014-15 Cover Image

Evergreen provides opportunities for students to pursue their interdisciplinary, liberal arts education by attending classes in the evenings and on weekends.  Evening and weekend offerings are included in the online catalog.  You can use the "Advanced Filter" feature to see only the programs and courses that are offered in the evenings or on weekends. If you would prefer, you can download a PDF copy of the 2014-2015 Evening and Weekend Studies catalog.

We also offer opportunities to earn academic credit for knowledge acquired through life and work experience. This video gives a brief introduction to our Prior Learning from Experience program.

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 4-credit courses available as well as a few 2-credit 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.

Considering Evergreen?

When you're planning your Evergreen education, the decisions about what to take are always up to you - there are no predetermined majors or required courses of study. That means you can select the evening/weekend classes that match your educational goals and fit best with your schedule.

In all of your classes you'll experience Evergreen's active learning approach - working closely with faculty and other students in seminar discussions, research, writing, labs and group projects while contributing your own valuable life lessons. Read what some of our adult students have to say about their experiences at Evergreen.

You don't have to be admitted to the college to start - simply register for a class. Begin your Evergreen education next quarter.
