Modular Courses

Flexible structures such as modular courses allow faculty to balance their research programs with their teaching commitments, working with students in courses that thrive at the intersection of the two. Innovative classes, risky topics, and engagement in projects that might otherwise compromise the difficult balance of faculty responsibilities become available to faculty when university plans look beyond the typical 15-week, 3-credit course structure.

For students, the benefits are similar: modular courses and flexible curricular structures give undergraduates the ability to explore various subjects over their relatively short college careers while still allowing for in-depth analysis of a topic taught by a passionate expert. Modular structures provide students with more space in their course load each semester to pursue without overloading on credits, allowing students who could not afford to pay overload tuition to experience a wider variety of Georgetown’s rich offerings, and granting all students the opportunity to dive deeply into their interests while completing a Georgetown degree.
