Majors & Minors

You’re wondering what you can study at Georgetown? We offer over 70 majors, minors and academic programs. Chances are you’ll find what you’re interested in. Even if you don’t find an area of academic interest right away, don’t worry! It’s not out of the ordinary to have a student design a major. Combined with the right internship and experiences you will have even better preparation than you’d find in a formal program elsewhere.

Undergraduate Programs | Graduate Programs

Are you undecided as to a major or academic area of interest? That’s OK!

One of the benefits of a top-notch liberal arts college is that you get to explore many different academic areas before you have to decide what you’d like to focus on.

Courses numbered 100-199 are intended primarily for freshman; 200-299 are intended primarily for sophomores; and courses numbered 300 and above for juniors and seniors. Freshmen may enroll in courses numbered 300 and above only with permission of the Provost/Dean of the College. Three letter codes following course categories designate headings on class schedules and other publications. Courses are normally offered only in the semester indicated at the end of each course listing. The College reserves the right to withdraw any course for which there is insufficient enrollment.
