Summer programs provide an exciting menu of academic offerings for both GW students and visiting students. In addition to nearly 700 regular summer session courses offered on campus, GW also offers summer online, summer abroad, summer institutes, and other special programs.
Summer Online Learning courses work with any schedule at any location. They do not meet at a set time, allowing students to pair coursework with other summer activities.
Summer Abroad courses range in duration from a few weeks to a few months. Students learn in some of the most fascinating locations - taking their studies beyond the lecture hall and into the global classroom.
GW Summer Institutes are thematically related courses that draw on site visits, seminars and guest lectures to immerse students in a specific subject area. Summer institutes offer a substantive, in-depth focus from a practical perspective, incorporating the unparalleled resources of Washington, DC.
Semester in Washington invites students from other universities to study and intern in applied politics or journalism.
Summer Pre-college Programs welcome high school students from around the country and the world to a college experience that is academically engaging and life changing.
