GW utilizes Washington, D.C., as an extended classroom. Faculty members hold classes in the U.S. Capitol, the Newseum, and the Folger Shakespeare Library. Guest lecturers like Ben Bernanke and José Andrés contribute real-world context and vision to the unique GW academic classroom.
Our highly collaborative, hands-on culture provides incredible opportunities for students and faculty alike to use the knowledge they gain in the classroom, the lab and the clinic to change the world.
From Dr. Toni Marsh’s paralegal students traveling to Tanzania to help its citizens rewrite their Constitution; to our Museum Studies students gaining invaluable experience at the Smithsonian Institution; to GW Law students receiving constitutional law lectures directly from Supreme Court Justices. These “only at GW” experiences are made possible by you.
