Academics

The GW Virginia Science and Technology Campus offers approximately 20 academic degree and certificate programs. Most of the programs on campus are designed to meet the professional needs and family demands of working students.

Program types vary by program and include the following formats:

  • Accelerated: finish your program faster than usual with an accelerated, intensive curriculum;
  • Cohort: students are admitted into a cohort and travel through the program in lockstep with the other members of their cohort;
  • Executive: designed for executives with busy work schedules, the programs may be offered on weekends, every other Friday or Saturday, and/or online learning mixed with residency requirements; and
  • Self-paced: students choose their classes and can adjust the speed of their degree completion each semester.

Some programs are also offered partially or fully online. Admission requirements and deadlines vary by program. Please contact department staff for additional information regarding your specific interests and for assistance in applying.

Business Programs

The EMIS program has a solid and well-integrated curriculum that provides practical instruction on a broad mix of technologies. The knowledge I gained was immediately applicable in the workplace. The instructors are outstanding and they emphasize technology's important role in providing all types of businesses a competitive advantage. I recommend participation to any person who has the drive to excel in a "best-in-class" educational program.
