The Online Experience

MHA@GW classes are delivered using innovative virtual classroom technology. Through the use of live video conferencing, students participate in face-to-face weekly class sessions hosted by renowned GW faculty. These intimate class sessions feature a small student-to-teacher ratio, and promote meaningful discussion between students and faculty. As health care administration is inherently a human relationship business, these live discussions foster valuable collaboration between students.

Leading up to the weekly class sessions, MHA@GW students complete engaging, self-paced multimedia coursework, which then drives the live discussions. Students also have access to a host of resources to supplement the educational experience. Benefits for online students include:

  • High-quality, faculty-designed video coursework — available 24/7
  • Connections to faculty and peers through online social connection channels
  • The opportunity to build a global professional network from day one
  • Access to all the benefits of the GW graduate experience, such as library resources, student and career services, and a global community of well-connected GW alumni
  • The ability to participate in GW’s on-campus commencement
