Core Theme

Evergreen Tacoma has an annual theme and common readings among all students. Individual courses connect to the theme intersectionally, covering a variety of academic interests.

All Evergreen undergraduate students develop their own path to best meet their interests and goals. When you graduate from Evergreen Tacoma, you’ll receive a Bachelor of Arts degree. 

Our Learning Approach

A Community Rooted in Shared Learning

Tacoma students participate in the Lyceum, a weekly gathering of all students and faculty. The Lyceum is your opportunity to meet with your advisor and work in small groups on a common academic theme.

Research Embedded in Community Action

Every year Tacoma students come together at the Spring Fair to present their multi-quarter research projects. The Spring Fair is a time for the campus and local communities to come together and learn from one another. 

Students identify a problem and then conduct research and determine strategies to address what is needed. Students present their results to their fellow students, staff, faculty, and community members.
