The Global Human Development Program sponsors this certificate program for Walsh School of Foreign Service undergraduate students. Participants are exposed to a broad, multidisciplinary range of courses as well as the core methodologies and analytical tools to identify, measure, and assess the determinants and effects of international development.
Georgetown University’s engagement with issues of global development is campus-wide, from the Main Campus to the Law Center and the Medical Center.
Distinguished faculty across schools, departments, and centers bring multidisciplinary strengths to teaching and research within this growing field. Global development work resonates with Georgetown's institutional commitment to advancement of the values of human dignity and the global common good. Washington, D.C., home to the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and an array of other key international and national institutions, is an ideal location for the exploration of global development issues in their policy, legal, and ethical dimensions.
