Georgetown University’s Semester in Washington, D.C. Program (SWP) provides students with a unique opportunity to develop their professional skills and broaden their academic experience in the heart of the nation’s capital. This innovative program, offered during the fall, spring, and summer semesters, features a combination of classroom learning and hands-on experience, where students have the opportunity to explore the vibrant political and cultural landscape of D.C.

Students will spend part of their time in a classroom setting, where they will hear guest lectures from international experts and business leaders, engage in stimulating group discussions, and explore current events. Throughout the course of the semester, students will also complete a guided independent research project, working closely with a Georgetown Research Advisor as they explore a topic of interest and apply the concepts they have learned.

In addition to academic and research pursuits, students will have an opportunity to either spend several days per week at an internship of their choice or take an elective course through the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program. Georgetown offers students a wide range of internship opportunities, including federal agencies, law firms, news organizations, nonprofits, public relations agencies, and many other reputable connections unique to Washington, D.C.*
