Georgetown University Reviews - Bachelor's in Political ScienceSee reviews of all programs at Georgetown University
I had a great Georgetown experience, especially within the school of foreign service. The classes offered were pertinent and interesting, and the faculty always available to discuss any topic - whether that be related to their class or otherwise. Multiple professors were very helpful to me when seeking advice relative to post-graduation plans. There were also many opportunities to network!
Georgetown is absolutely a wonderful place to pursue your undergraduate education. It's not perfect, but it offers plenty of opportunities for both your career and your academic interests. I cannot speak highly enough of the School of Foreign Service (SFS), since the professors there are some of the best you'll find anywhere and are dedicated to making sure their students both understand and enjoy the material. Georgetown offers so much for any prospective student and I wouldn't trade my Georgetown experience for the world.
Georgetown provides its student with quality education both inside and outside the classroom. With its commitment to "women and men for others" and various Jesuit values, a Georgetown student is always taught to put their education towards the service of the greater good. The amount of opportunities available outside the classroom setting both in terms of travel and extracurricular activities makes a Georgetown student equipped with both academic and entrepreneurial skills. The diversity and globalism of the student body provides a necessary space of interaction for a foreign service degree and trains students to be quite cosmopolitan. While some classes are academically traditional or conservative, a lot of the classes available in the foreign service degree are experimental and allow for a cross of various disciplines. Overall its one of the best schools to attend to get trained in international affairs.
Studying political science in the nation's capital was an incredible experience. There, I had access to a plethora of internship and academic opportunities that enabled me to build on this area of interest from both a practical and educational sense.
Academics are very rigorous but the community and opportunities are so rewarding.
