Culture

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.

Online Language Classes Bring Cultural Immersion Home

At a time when remote class and work environments have made the outside world feel very distant for most, Georgetown’s online language classes have brought global experiences back into students’ daily lives. 

Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics

Housed in the Walsh School of Foreign Service, the Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics (The Lab) harnesses the power of performance to humanize global politics. The Lab believes that theater can counter polarization through the empathy it enables in a live communal setting.
