Teaching Modalities

All courses are offered in the evenings and can be taken either at our SoHo Manhattan location in-person, or online, depending on your needs as a working professional.

In-Person (Face-to Face)

In-person or face-to-face teaching takes place between 6:00pm and 8:30pm during weekdays (Monday through Thursday). These synchronous, interactive courses allow students to be physically present on-campus and engage with peers and faculty in a real-time format.


Online offerings are designed by the same renowned faculty members who create our robust and interactive in-person programs. GCNYC makes it possible for students to pursue their academic aspirations regardless of location.

For Master of Science Degree programs, students meet virtually for live 1.5 hour sessions (once or twice a week depending on the number of courses taken per trimester), accompanied by asynchronous work outside the virtual classroom.
