International politics grad 2014 - 6/11/2015
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014
"Georgetown was the best possible place for me to do a degree in International Politics. I learned from both academics and practitioner professors, had the opportunity to do seven internships at amazing organizations and government agencies over three years, had a great network of friends and acquaintances who were smart and passionate about the same things I am. If you want to study politics or international politics, go to Georgetown - and get ready."

"Georgetown University is a vibrant campus community in the heart of our nation’s capital - the experience of being so close to major events, leaders and policy making is hard to replicate. Overall, Georgetown is a great environment to learn, grow, and meet very dynamic people. There are always student-focused events going on around campus each day and tons of student-led organizations that make it easy to get involved on campus. The Jesuit history of the university also is a distinctive characteristic of the campus. Georgetown is open to all faiths, cultures and students are open to voice their opinions about current events as they arise. The experience as a master’s student is indeed different than that of an undergraduate student - we have more autonomy. However, there were plenty of opportunities to connect with classmates and fellow graduate students across campus. In fact, I made many close friends during my time as a grad student at Georgetown. Coursework is challenging yet engaging, and the professors really want students to think outside the box and challenge the status quo. I was pleased to find that most of my courses were quite small which meant more personal interaction with instructors."

"Georgetown University price is a reflection of more than the facilities or the education. You are posting into the Alumni network, that is the only way you will be able to get a job to combat the burden of student loans."

"Tell us about your college experience.Georgetown University was definitely a good fit for my personality, future endeavors (personally and professionally), upbringing. Coming from a small city in South Texas, my exposure to different social and cultural groups was limited. Georgetown opened my eyes, and heart, to a diverse nation and international community that I had not yet experienced.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?I would choose the same degree of International History as the coursework prepared me for graduate work in the MA Latin America Studies program.What advice can you offer other students?If possible, visit all colleges/universities that you are interested in applying and (even more importantly) serious about attending for your 4-year experience. Each visit was the "make or break" in my decision-making as I explored the campus community and surrounding city. I asked the following question; "Do I feel at home here?""

"Deciding on where to attend college is a major decision - it can affect where you live, work and who you meet in the future. I am extremely satisfied with my decision to attend Georgetown University. Located in the Nation’s capital, Georgetown is a hub for intellectual talent and interesting people, and a beautiful city! Georgetown offers a wide range of courses that appeal to just about any interest- from government, the sciences, preforming arts, law and business. Classwork is challenging yet engaging, but the professors really want students to think outside the box and challenge the status quo. In addition, I was pleased to find that a decent number of courses actually have small class sizes which means more personal interaction with instructors. Overall, Georgetown is a great environment to learn, grow and meet very cool people. There are always student-focused events going on around campus each day and tons of student-led organizations that make it easy to get involved on campus. It is also a plus that the university is (in my opinion) in one of the best cities in North America! If you’re struggling with the daunting task of narrowing down your college search, I would definitely recommend Georgetown University as it will always feel like home."
