We work with a large pool of industry veterans around the world. Please speak with our Admissions team to find out who is teaching the upcoming course in your location.

Can I work full-time while enroled in this course?

Yes! All of our Short Courses are designed for busy professionals with full-time work commitments. Depending on your location, classes meet twice per week in the evenings, or all day on Saturday. If you’re able to dedicate a full week to learning, we also have a full-time, accelerated 1-week option. You may opt to take this course in-person at one of our 20+ campuses or online via our Remote classroom setup. 

You will be expected to spend time working on homework and projects outside of class hours each week, but the workload is designed to be manageable with a full-time job.

If you need to miss a session or two, we offer resources to help you catch up. We recommend you discuss any planned absences with your instructor.

Which format should I take this course in — on campus or online?

It’s up to you! Our Remote courses offer a learning experience that mirrors GA’s on-campus offerings but allow you to learn from the comfort of home. If you don’t live near a GA campus, have a busy travel schedule, or just want to save yourself the commute, a Remote course could be a good option for you, if available in your market. You’ll still get access to the expert instruction, learning resources, and support network that GA is known for.

If you prefer to learn alongside your peers and can make it to campus, our in-person courses allow you to take advantage of our beautiful classrooms and workspaces.
