Olympia Undergraduate Program

College should be your time and space to dig deep and dream big. At Evergreen, we go beyond majors and minors. Here you can layer your interests choosing from more than 45 Fields of Study to follow your own path of learning, or select one of 11 pre-planned Paths to achieve your goals.

Whether you build your own route or select a defined Path, you will study interconnected subjects that reflect real-world complexity. Learn biology and chemistry together, as they exist in the natural world. Explore a different country through its language, history, geography, and culture. Discover how the environment, art, and gender studies are all connected. Acquire an education that prepares you to think, create, analyze and solve problems.

Programs and Narrative Evaluations

You can enroll in a single full-time program that layers multiple subjects or Fields of Study or combine a part-time program with a single-subject course. Browse our catalog to find offerings that suit your interests.

All your credits will count toward your Bachelor of Arts or Science and you’ll learn, grow, and explore as you earn your degree.

We use context and explanation to evaluate performance, not a simple letter grade. (Kind of like the real world.) Detailed evaluations highlight your work and provide specific examples of your progress.
