Georgetown University offers a range of leading graduate programs on international relations and world affairs.

Within the School of Foreign Service, the Master of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) is one of eight graduate degrees that prepare students for careers across global issues and world regions. Georgetown’s other schools also offer graduate degrees with a strong international dimension.

Georgetown's Washington, D.C., location places its students in one of the most prominent global cities, with access to policymakers and experts across fields. Building on the Jesuit tradition of academic excellence and service to others, Georgetown's graduate programs prepare students to be citizens and leaders in an interconnected world.
