Thank you for your interest in Georgetown University. Georgetown is a leading student-centered research university, based in Washington, DC, and open to the world. We are home to more than 18,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students preparing to serve and lead in sectors across the world—from business, health, and law to policy, science, humanities, and the arts.

At Georgetown, we sustain a supportive learning environment that enables students to grow intellectually and personally in community with others. Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have prioritized the well-being of our students, maintaining our commitment to academic excellence and world-class instruction, whether remote or in-person. Our students develop theoretical knowledge and a practical outlook, enabling them to be uniquely prepared to meet the complex challenges of our world.

Over the past 50 years, we have made a remarkable transition from a leading national university to a truly global institution. Since our founding more than two centuries ago, Georgetown has been deeply committed to our international identity and to welcoming students and scholars from around the world. Today, this commitment has never been stronger—with students and faculty from more than135 countries, more than 180 study abroad programs, more than 250 academic partnerships with institutions across the world, and a global network of alumni.

As a global institution, we are committed not only to sustaining a diverse international community but also to engaging global challenges and pursuing research, teaching, and service from a global perspective. Whether you are pursuing an undergraduate, graduate, or professional degree, you will be members of a global community and will have opportunities to be deeply engaged in issues shaping our world.

We we invite you to learn more about our academic offerings, our global character, and the experience of living and studying in Washington, DC.
