Summer Sessions for Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Online Courses

*Please note that courses are subject to change.

Georgetown University Summer Sessions now offers select undergraduate courses online during the eight-week Cross Session. These online courses are designed and taught by Georgetown’s faculty members, in consultation with Georgetown’s Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship (CNDLS). The courses feature the same content and objectives as on-campus courses offered in the fall, spring, and summer. As with on-campus summer courses, students may apply credit from these online courses toward their degree. All Georgetown University students must have approval from their dean or academic advisor before registering in an online course. Visiting students are advised to obtain approval from their home institution’s dean or academic advisor prior to registering.

Registration for summer online courses is open to all eligible students. Space is limited.

More About Georgetown Summer Sessions Online Courses

Students enrolled in the three-credit Georgetown online courses can expect to spend 4.7 hours per week engaging with course content and 10 hours per week doing related assignments. Students will have significant engagement with their classmates as well as with the course instructor. All course material will be delivered through the Canvas Learning Management system in a predominately asynchronous environment.

Some of the courses include a few hours of synchronous time where groups of students will have a chance to discuss ideas in real time with the course instructor. Activities may include watching videos, participating in blogs and/or discussion boards, using tools such as Google Docs and YouTube, and taking surveys and quizzes within Canvas. All courses are equivalent in content and rigor to their complementary on-campus courses.
