Potential Careers

“Georgetown’s education program was great for me for so many reasons, one being that the professors are willing to work with you if you happen to need accommodations.  I loved the small class sizes as well and how you really got to know your professors on a personal level.  Another thing I loved is that they get you into the classroom right away to make sure education is a good fit for you.  I strongly encourage being a part of this program.”
