Does the institution offer a program that meets the criteria for this credit?:

A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive experience(s) offered by the institution:

Yes. Instead of taking several classes at once, Evergreen students may select an inter-disciplinary academic program in which they explore a central idea or theme. Faculty members from different subject areas teach programs in teams, each drawing on several disciplines to help develop critical tools to navigate the real-world issues that we face today - issues like health care in the United States, the search for oil worldwide, or artistic expression across cultures. Programs are 16 credits and include lectures, labs, readings, seminars, field study and/or research projects, and may last one, two or even three quarters, building on themes developed in previous quarters.

Seventeen different immersive programs (16 credits) with sustainability themes will be offered in 2011-12. 22 sustainability themed immersive programs were offered in 2010-11.
