Boasting more than 24,000 alums in 65 countries, the Graduate School of Education and Human Development at the George Washington University is on a mission to change the world. Graduates work in a variety of settings -- from schools, museums, and corporations to think tanks, non-profits, and government agencies. The school has expanded the ways graduate education programs are presented. In addition to the main campus in Washington, D.C., classes are offered at four locations in Virginia (Alexandria, Ashburn, Arlington, and Hampton Roads) and through its nationally recognized online program. Such flexibility allows working professionals to continue their studies and eliminates geographic barriers to a GWU education. GWU’s human resource development program was the first in the nation specifically devoted to the field of organization-based training and development. The school also pioneered the transition special education master’s program and the educational technology leadership program. The nationally ranked rehabilitation counseling program sees its mission as preparing professionals to empower persons with disabilities to help themselves, and students get plenty of practical experience through two required internships. In addition to its many masters and doctoral degree offerings, the school conducts graduate certificate programs in specialized areas such as autism spectrum disorders, global leadership in teams and organizations, and instructional design.
