What You’ll Study
Common Theme, Different Options
The Tacoma Program has an annual theme and common readings among all students. Individual courses connect to the theme in many ways, covering a variety of academic interests.
Every student participates 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.
Learn more about current and future program themes in the Tacoma Catalog.
Research Embedded In Community Action
Each year, all students take on multi-quarter research projects. You’ll identify a problem, conduct research, and determine strategies to address it. Then you'll present your results at the spring fair. People from the community will see your ideas and may even take on your recommendations. You then take the work you did in your junior year and expand it into your senior year.
You’ll develop your own academic pathway to best meet your interests and goals.
Creating Your Degree
Like all Evergreen students, students in the Tacoma Program do not select preset majors. Instead, you’ll develop your own academic pathway to best meet your interests and goals. When you graduate from Evergreen's Tacoma Program, you’ll receive a Bachelor of Arts degree.
You’ll work closely with your advisor and other faculty to design a course of study that works for you. Learn more about the faculty in the Tacoma Program.
