History

Georgetown is a leader in global, trans-regional, and comparative history.

Research and teaching at Georgetown focus on the intersection and integration of our world’s many interlinked societies. With a faculty that is broadly international in its range of skills and interests, the Department of History offers courses and programs that span all regions of the globe. Georgetown’s interdisciplinary offerings allow students to evaluate history in the context of social, economic, cultural, intellectual, environmental, demographic, military, political, and diplomatic change. Moreover, Georgetown’s D.C. location—a city rich in American history and home of world-renowned museums and archives—serves as an ideal setting for an immersive and interactive study of domestic and global history.
