Take classes from the comfort of home while earning academic credit through our flexible online courses. Offered during the Cross Session and the 6-week Sessions, these courses feature the same academic content and learning objectives as the on-campus courses, but in an entirely virtual format. You’ll learn from prestigious Georgetown faculty while developing your skills through a combination of lectures, coursework, and group discussions.
Our online courses provide the same academic content as our on-campus courses—they award the same number of credits, meet the same learning objectives, and cover the same kinds of material—the primary difference is that they’re offered in a convenient virtual setting. Some online courses are asynchronous—allowing for a more flexible time frame for students to listen to lectures, complete their readings, and turn in assignments. Others include synchronous sessions, where all students log in at the same time to participate in the lecture.
We are able to offer Summer Sessions courses in the online format to residents of all U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. For information on international eligibility, please visit the Online Students page.
