Everyone knows how important lifelong learning and continual growth are. Want to keep learning and growing throughout your entire life? Do it with others as smart, interesting, and interested as you.
Portland Underground Grad School (PUGS) offers courses and workshops that matter. Taught by local experts, they are filled with smart, interesting, and motivated Portlanders. We believe that a quality education is key to personal and societal transformation. As a matter of social justice and community, we have a Radical Pricing Policy so everyone can come to class debt-free and affordably.
