Online Student Experience

The Power of a Georgetown Education in a Flexible, Online Program

Georgetown's School of Continuing Studies is committed to empowering highly motivated students to pursue their passions, accelerate their careers, and enrich their daily lives. We realize that traditional classroom learning does not work for all students. Taking online or blended classes enables you to earn your degree from almost anywhere and learn at your pace.

Our online courses provide the same academic content as the on-campus courses, award the same number of credits, meet the same learning objectives, and feature many of the same faculty members.

All online courses are asynchronous, allowing for a more flexible time frame for you to complete readings and turn in assignments.

Technology to Maximize Your Learning Experience


We use the Canvas online learning platform to help instructors make online learning more interactive, authentic, and effective. We also supplement many of our online courses with tools such as VoiceThread, Poll Everywhere, and TurnItIn. These enhanced learning methods provide a robust academic experience that enables global networking among students, faculty, and industry partners.


The Online Course Schedule

Students can complete the course of study for most online programs in two years; however, students may take up to five years to finish or choose an accelerated schedule to earn their degree faster. Online courses run in 7.5-week modules during the fall, spring, and summer semesters. No on-campus residencies are required, however, online students are welcome to visit campus and take advantage of in-person resources such as the library and study spaces.
