GT has style courses for Acoustic, Blues, Country & Rock because those have the most demand among guitar students. And they typically have the most crossover, or transferable concepts & skills (as DraconusJLM said, thanks!)
Another reason the genres you mentioned are not featured is that they are very specialized & are too complex for a beginner level course!
Having said that, there are plenty of standalone tutorials that cover those genres. For example, I've organized my tutorials on my directory to give students a general path to follow for classical and jazz. Scroll down the see those sections.
And in my instructor forum I have a sticky thread that outlines a specific path for learning classical at GT.
As well as jazz.
But please keep in mind that classical & jazz guitar styles are complex & difficult endeavors. We can teach you the basics, but beyond a certain point it's a serious discipline that will require a lot of time & effort, likely involving a real world university level study course.
There are also some tutorials aimed at funk.
Hope that helps!
