At Mason, we embrace a learning approach that is collaborative, experiential, global, and technology-rich. And while traditional classrooms aren’t disappearing anytime soon, they are definitely evolving and becoming, well, smarter.

There is less lecturing and more active interaction between faculty and students. State-of-the-art labs are strictly in limits, so students can partake in groundbreaking research. And more and more programs are being offered online to provide even more accessibility.

Because of our proximity to Washington, D.C., students can also take advantage of many different opportunities for research, fieldwork, internships, and work experience in a real-world setting. Imagine interning at the CIA, the Washington Post, or any number of prestigious Fortune 500 companies where you can get hands-on experience and make lifelong connections. Want to go even farther off campus? Mason offers nearly 90 programs abroad, taking students to more than 30 different countries.

With more than 200 undergraduate and graduate degrees and hundreds of concentrations and minors, you can customize your education in a way that best suits your objectives. You can even create your own degree.

At Mason, it isn’t learning by the book. It’s learning outside the box.
