About Georgetown University

As the oldest Catholic and Jesuit university in the U.S., Georgetown comprises nine schools, all located in the heart of Washington, D.C. Georgetown's School of Continuing Studies (SCS) offers a wide range of master's degrees in online formats, including programs in business & management, marketing & communications, real estate, higher education, and technology & security.
The Online Student Experience
Online students receive the same high-quality academic content and instructors as those in Georgetown's on-campus programs. The online courses are available in both a traditional 15-week format as well as in short 7.5-week modules. Most courses allow students to complete their coursework on their own time frame, though students may be required to log in at some specific times to participate in class discussions or interact with their professors. Georgetown online students use Canvas and Blackboard to access their course materials. Other online tools, such as VoiceThread, PollEverywhere, and TurnItIn, provide students with enhanced learning options for interacting and networking with classmates and faculty.
