Master's Programs

Whether you are looking to advance in your career or build on your research experience, a master's degree from the George Washington University offers the opportunity to take your knowledge to the next level.

Through a combination of courses, labs and workshops, master's students at the School of Engineering & Applied Science can expect to take 2-3 years for completion, full-time or part-time. Additionally, students may choose to complete the program with a thesis or take additional courses as a replacement.
