With cross-university courses, you can choose from more than 50 courses that go beyond the MPH@GW curriculum, which means you can broaden your portfolio to include elective classes in an area of study that meets your personal and professional interests. For example, you may consider MPA@UNC courses like Navigating Nonprofit-Local Government Relationships in Organizations or Technology and Community Engagement.

As with your MPH@GW courses, these feature live, online classes taught by university faculty and a low student-to-faculty ratio. They also feature high-quality, immersive coursework that you complete on your own time.

All cross-university courses must be approved before enrollment. The George Washington University will accept up to 12 transfer credits from courses offered by participating universities. If approved, credit will be granted by the course-providing school. You will be billed by the course-providing school at their current per-credit rate, and you may be able to apply your financial aid toward your course. Once you enroll in the MPH@GW program, your student support advisor can help you.

*Please note that each university participating in this initiative has its own rules and restrictions regarding the enrollment of MPH@GW students in its courses.
