Special Programs

GW Summer offers many special programs in addition to traditional courses.

Special Programs provide opportunities for unique, in-depth study during the summer.

Summer Institutes

Summer Institutes feature intensive academic investigation through a course or set of thematically related courses. Programs vary in length and some combine credits for a discounted tuition rate.

Short-Term Abroad

Short-term abroad programs allow students to experience the adventure and rigor of international study in a compressed timeframe.

GW Pre-College

The GW Pre-College Program provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity for high school students to explore their academic interests at a top research university. Our challenging credit and non-credit courses are enriched by the intellectual and cultural resources of Washington D.C. and taught by GW faculty and field experts.
