Integrated Biology and Chemistry

Fascinated by life from atoms to molecules to cells to species to ecosystems? Want to learn by doing through unrivaled access to our unique learning environment of forests, shorelines, and exceptional lab facilities? Interested in health, medicine, and allied fields? Find out about our integrated biology and chemistry sequence of lab and field programs, how you can do introductory through advanced work in these areas, how to meet prerequisites for upper division work, and how to get a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree integrating biology and chemistry.

 

 

Visual Arts 

Visual Art students learn to create art and to use artistic skills as a means for exploring the vast world of ideas. Students apply the theoretical and critical concepts they are learning to a range of artistic practices, from solving design problems to the production of full-scale independent projects. Faculty will discuss the ways in which studies in Visual Art prepare students for creative fields and other lines of work in non-profits, business, and government that require creative problem solving, collaborative planning and execution, design skills, research, risk taking, and knowledge of visual culture.

 

 

 

 

Join faculty members in conversation about the literary arts. We’ll discuss opportunities for production of critical and creative works with a variety of intermedia possibilities. We’ll explore how this path’s curriculum will support capstone projects in either critical or creative work, as well as provide support for students who wish to pursue graduate studies and scholarship situated within literary criticism, theory, and cultural studies. 

 

Learn about the diverse programs CTLWS offers, including history, literature, cultural studies, ethnic studies, sociology, psychology, philosophy, religious studies and languages. Discover this path's vibrant study abroad options, and discuss careers and graduate studies in social sciences and humanities.

 

 

Many students describe studying abroad as the most pivotal part of their undergraduate experience. We’ll discuss the options for travel available at Evergreen, how studying abroad fits with the broader expectations and philosophies of the college, and what sorts of post-baccalaureate internships, work, or graduate study are possible. 

 

Curious about how to solve environmental problems like climate change? Preparing for work or graduate studies in ecology? Interested in learning how to merge natural and social sciences? We’ll answer questions about Environmental Studies as well as how to get your Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. We’ll discuss possible opportunities including collaborative research with faculty, internships in natural resource management and ecological restoration, ways to get involved in environmental education and environmental justice, Evergreen’s Masters in Environmental Studies degree, and preparing for other graduate programs.

 

 

Native American and Indigenous Programs (NAIP) includes undergraduate, graduate, and public service programs, with full and part-time programs and courses. Faculty will be available to discuss Indigenous knowledge as a field of interconnected study, an undergraduate curriculum that prepares students for graduate work, and projects that support long-term relationships with Pacific Northwest tribes and other Indigenous nations.

 

 

 

Who has what, who does what kinds of work, how did it become that way, and how could it be different? Faculty will be available to discuss ways that students can investigate answers through the combined study of economics, politics, ecology, geography, cultural studies, history, sociology, and philosophy.

 

 

We all eat food. If we are lucky we eat food that is fairly produced, tasty and healthy. But, how is good food raised, grown or foraged, by whom, and at what cost? How does food get from the farm to our table? If you’re curious about these questions, and about how you can study food and agriculture, join our faculty convener and learn about what Evergreen has to offer in these exciting fields. We’ll talk about academic programs, like Practice of Organic Farming, and Evergreen’s Organic Farm, as well as individual learning contracts, internships, pre-professional work, field study, advanced research, senior theses and capstone projects in food and agriculture.
