Introduction to Georgetown Majors Workshops ​​​​​​​
Saturday, November 16

Students will get an introduction to all the majors at Georgetown University (International Politics, Culture and Politics, International Economics, and International History). These workshops will feature sample lectures from professors at Georgetown University, in addition to panel discussions with professors, staff and current students pursuing the respective majors.

  • Session 1: International Politics and Culture & Politics Workshop 
  • Session 2: International Economics and International History Workshop 

You should attend both sessions but you will have to choose one of the two majors per session. For instance, you can attend International Politics and International Economics because they are two different sessions but not International Politics and Culture & Politics.
