Important news regarding Evergreen's 2013 M.Ed. program.                                                                    

Because of enrollment and budget concerns, we will not be starting a new cohort in the 2013-2015 biennium.  If you would be interested in having Evergreen start an M.Ed. cohort in the future, please fill out this form. Thank you for your interest. If you have questions please contact Lynne Adair at 360.867.6639. Our M.Ed. program was created primarily for working teachers. Our M.Ed. program is not the same as our MiT (Master in Teaching program) If you are not yet a teacher and would like to be, we still offer our MiT program.

An Evergreen M.Ed. is a great value, offering a quality program at less than half the cost of some master’s options in the region.

Because of the program's convenient schedule, you can complete your degree in less than two years while continuing to work and at tuition rates that compare favorably to other programs in the South Sound region.
