Degree Programs

(MS, PhD, and professional degrees)


Combined BS/MS Programs

The George Washington University offers a number of combined five-year bachelor's/master's programs to its undergraduate students. Here's a listing of the programs and further information on them.


Graduate Certificate Programs

A graduate certificate program is essentially half of an MS program; students who successfully complete a graduate certificate program then have the option to transfer their credits into one of our MS programs. Similarly, MS students can earn a graduate certificate in parallel with their master's degree. Students in either situation must work closely with their academic advisors to ensure they are enrolling in the proper classes to meet the requirements of both the graduate certificate and the MS.

Please note that visa-seeking international students may not enroll in a graduate certificate program.

If you are interested in pursuing any of the following programs at the degree (MS, PhD, or professional degrees), please see the note under each to know which degree program above to apply to. Contact the admissions office with questions.
