Corcoran Continuing Education

As of Fall 2014, Corcoran Continuing Education courses are part of The George Washington University Office of Non-Degree Students. These courses are available to all non-degree students at the University. All students wishing to enroll in these courses, who are not in an existing GW degree or certificate program, including students who have previously taken courses at Corcoran must first apply to be a non-degree student prior to registration in these or any GW courses.

Corcoran Continuing Education Certificates

GW welcomes current Corcoran Continuing Education Certificate students to the University. This program is not accepting new students, but current students will be advised, and provided course options to complete their current certificate studies. Due to the availability of classes relevant to these programs, certificate students must maintain continuous enrollment in coursework in order to complete their program successfully, and may have earlier program completion deadlines.

Health Intervention and Disaster Response Program

While bachelor’s programs are common across emergency services and disaster management, an undergraduate program that offers a global focus supported by applied science coursework provides a unique option for civil affairs medics seeking to build on their existing academic, military, and training experiences. Civilians and other military personnel are encouraged to apply if they have international health care experience.
