Georgetown University

Georgetown University is the oldest Jesuit and Catholic school in the nation, yet it opens its illustrious doors to the best students from all walks of life. Georgetown offers its students almost 50 majors to choose from. If they find that their academic interests aren’t represented by any of them, they can design their own individual course of study. Conveniently located in the District of Columbia, Georgetown University offers its students the dynamic combination of accessible and prominent faculty, an extensive curriculum, and an exciting and culturally appealing location. Internship and research opportunities abound just off campus in many of the most prominent think-tanks, advocacy groups and research institutes in the country. Nail biting finishes to Big East title games, rigorous courses with prestigious professors or the infinite possibilities offered by D.C.; for all these reasons and more, incoming students flock to Georgetown every Fall.
