You can expect the most innovative, engaging faculty and content from all of The George Washington University’s online courses. While they offer a wide range of online learning programs in a variety of formats, every one provides the intellectual rigor of the traditional GW curriculum. Whether you take a course that is entirely online or a blend of online and classroom study, you will find:
- A virtual classroom experience. Most of GW’s online courses or course components are not self-paced, independent study. You will interact with the professor and other students, actively participate in a virtual classroom community and submit assignments according to deadlines set by the professor.
- An academic challenge. Online courses are as rigorous as on-campus courses, requiring the same amount of study time, commitment to attending class and completion of homework assignments.
- A need for self-discipline and time management. Students taking online learning should reserve time each day to participate actively in class through the course management Web site and complete their homework and other class assignments.
