Georgetown's Department of Performing Arts sponsors this major in American musical culture for undergraduate students interested in American studies, arts management, cultural criticism, entertainment law, media studies, music business, music journalism, or musicology.
Georgetown’s commitment to the study of culture and the promotion of intercultural understanding on an international scale is reflected in a range of course and program offerings.
On campus and abroad, faculty research spans across multiple disciplines, including history, sociology, psychology, and anthropology. Professors bring these research interests into the classroom, exposing students to a variety of cultures through diverse disciplinary lenses. Every student enrolled in the College must demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language, and Culture and Politics is one of the most popular concentrations in the Walsh School of Foreign Service. The university’s arts and performing arts programs, as well as its proximity to embassies and renowned cultural centers in Washington, D.C., provide access to world-class cultural offerings.
