  • Mathematics: The mathematics community at Evergreen is here to help you dig into what excites you most. You’ll learn to use math as a way of seeing the world and find deep patterns that reveal connections between different systems. No matter where you’re starting, you can find your way to advanced mathematics on this Path.
  • Physical Sciences: Physical sciences include physics, chemistry, and earth sciences. In these programs, you’ll explore the nature of the physical world and how it relates to human and non-human systems. You’ll learn with a supportive community and gain skills through hands-on opportunities that will prepare you for advanced scientific work.

Labs and Studios

Get hands-on experience in labs where you’ll learn the collaborative and analytical skills professional scientists use every day. 

You’ll have access to labs for:

  • Introductory and advanced physics
  • General, physical, and inorganic chemistry
  • Environmental and water quality analysis
  • Physical computing (robotics, 3D printing, and more)
  • Electronics and metrology
  • Advanced instrumentation and computer interfacing

Scientific Instruments

The independence and support you get as an undergrad scientist at Evergreen is a one-of-a-kind experience. In programs on this Path, you’ll learn to prepare and run your own samples and get to know advanced scientific instruments well enough to put them on your resume.

Graduating with skills in using these instruments will give you an edge over the competition when applying for graduate schools, research opportunities, and jobs in the field.
