Mason’s 4-VA program sponsors shared courses with James Madison, Old Dominion University, University of Virginia and Virginia Tech in state-of-the-art Telepresence classrooms. The shared courses provide an opportunity for students to take courses from other institutions that may not be otherwise available.  For example, this spring semester, George Mason is sharing Persian and Korean language courses with James Madison, and receiving Hebrew from Virginia Tech. Mason and James Madison are also teaching a joint course in community engagement.
