Student Experience

Live Classes

MHA@GW uses live video conferencing technology to create a seminar-style learning environment that brings students and instructors face to face. This collaborative classroom structure ensures that there is no back row and empowers students to bring their unique perspective to each and every classroom discussion.

A dynamic set of cutting-edge learning tools

Immersive Coursework

Throughout each week, students will complete faculty-designed coursework that expands on the week’s lessons and prepares them for the next live session. These assignments can be completed online or downloaded through our mobile application and can be completed from anywhere, without the need for an Internet connection.

Coursework consists of dynamic content in the form of videos, interactive quizzes and various multimedia assignments that can be completed according to your own schedule.

Immersion Experiences

Real-world experience plays a key role in helping our students develop into health care leaders. Students will participate in periodic real-world learning experiences held on the GW campus and at health care facilities in the U.S. and abroad. These immersive experiences help students develop leadership skills and allow them to see the mechanisms of high-performing health delivery organizations firsthand.

Social Engagement

The global online classroom brings accomplished and aspiring health care leaders from around the world together in a collaborative environment. Through highly personal interactions both in and outside of class, students will gain a global perspective and develop valuable personal and professional relationships.

Students share experiences and learn from peers.

Classmates collaborate in small groups.

Students socialize both inside and outside of class.


Throughout the entire MHA@GW experience, students will be supported by a dedicated network of faculty and peers. Be it application guidance from admissions counselors, one-on-one mentorship from professors, assistance from our career services team or networking opportunities before, during and after their time as a student, MHA@GW students have all the help they need to succeed as a health care leader.

Complimentary WeWork Membership

Students in the GW Public Health Online programs receive a complimentary WeWork membership, which gives them access more than 240 WeWork locations worldwide, each with on-site amenities — including printers, office supplies, kitchen space and coffee.
