About our courses

Our GPS courses are offered in an accelerated format, running from five (5) to ten (10) weeks each depending on the course and level (undergraduate or graduate). On-ground courses meet one evening a week for four hours and have assignments due the first evening of class. Online courses have multiple assignments due throughout the week, often within a few days of the course start date. Courses are pre-developed and instructors are provided with a Faculty Instructional Guide for each course they teach. The program does not operate on a semester or term basis; rather cohorts of students and courses are scheduled as needed throughout the year. Since students are scheduled for their entire core program up front, faculty members normally are contracted well in advance of their course start date.

About our locations

While many of our programs are offered online, we are particularly in need of faculty members who can teach on-ground classes at one or more of our Virginia locations:

  • Danville
  • Quantico
  • Richmond
