Real World Learning
Real world learning is a hallmark of the George Washington University. The University’s unique D.C. location and its ability to offer exceptional student internship, research, and international-study opportunities set us apart from other institutions of higher learning.
GW’s internships cannot be replicated anywhere else. Students obtain coveted paid internships, professional-level assignments, volunteer positions, and internships for academic credit while still in college. These experiences leave them better prepared than most to enter the real world upon graduation.
GW’s outstanding research opportunities also give students competitive advantages. The University capitalizes on its integrated research-teaching environment to promote involvement, connection, and results, allowing students to become involved in a diverse range of research endeavors.
Finally, as a leader in international education, GW offers an array of study abroad programs. Each year more than 1,600 GW students study abroad in nearly 50 countries. Our students find that such international exposure fosters a real-world understanding and maturity that sets them apart from their peers.
