Academics at GSA
Engaged, hands-on learning, supportive faculty, small classes, challenging coursework: These are just a few words and phrases that describe GSA's curricular offerings and support.
"Sometimes we learn because it satisfies our curiosity, or is self-fulfilling, or expands who we are. Sometimes we learn because it prepares us for later education, or for a career, or to be good citizens of our community. All these aspects of learning can be found in the curriculum and education at GSA," wrote David Stearns, Dean of Curriculum and Instruction.
