The Georgetown University College of Arts & Sciences experience is marked by intellectual vitality, a global outlook, and dedication to service. In the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis, the Georgetown University College of Arts & Sciences strives to provide its students with a multifaceted liberal arts education—an education of the whole person.
Our exceptional students and world-class faculty are the heart and soul of the university. The College curriculum explores the full range of human endeavors, questions, and values. College students build an enduring liberal arts foundation across multiple forms of inquiry in a shared core experience, while 47 majors and 58 minors present boundless freedom to follow their most authentic academic paths. Students are introduced to ideas sustained throughout history and are invited and expected to think critically about the nature of the world and our place in it.
Georgetown is an integral part of the Washington, DC landscape. Our students have the full advantage of our complex urban environment where international interests and national priorities intersect against a stunning backdrop of great affluence and greater need. Complementing our full-time faculty, the College also draws faculty from Washington’s many governmental and non-governmental agencies, cultural organizations, and research institutes. In turn, our students find internships and work opportunities ranging from inner-city mentoring programs to the offices of Capitol Hill.
