Online & Off-Campus Students

To provide flexibility for the diverse student body at the George Washington University (GW), we provide programs off of our main campus in D.C. As a distance learner, you’ll still receive the same quality education and degree as your on-campus counterparts but can also take advantage of additional flexibility to ensure that graduate study fits into your lifestyle.

Off-Campus Programs

We offer programs in a number of locations in northern Virginia and around the D.C. area. You can study at a graduate education center in Arlington or Alexandria, or on our Virginia Science & Technology Campus (VSTC). Our off campus program participants still benefit from the same proximity and partnerships offered to other students at GW. For example,

  • Museum Studies students learn next door to the Smithsonian museums and alongside the National Mall.
  • Engineering Management students take advantage of the high-tech corridor in Loudoun County, the home of VSTC.
  • Legislative Affairs students hone their craft at the Hall of States on Capitol Hill.

Online Programs

GW offers a wide array of online degree opportunities, representing the range of our academic programs. From arts to public health to engineering and more, you can find a program that meets your interests and needs outside of graduate school. Additionally, many of our programs are offered in a hybrid format, so you have flexibility to take courses both online and on-campus.
