The Department of Government is home to thriving Undergraduate, Masters and Ph.D. programs, all of which have recently been recognized to be among the best in the world. Ph.D.programs are offered in American Government, Comparative Government, International Relations, and Political Theory. It offers a Master's degree in American Government, International Law and Politics, Conflict Resolution, Development, Management and Policy, and Democracy and Governance Studies.
The Department also offers joint M.A./Ph.D. programs with the Georgetown Public Policy Institute, Security Studies, German and European Studies, Latin American Studies, Eurasian-Russian-East European Studies, Arab Studies, and the Georgetown University Law School. Taking into account the new and existing programs in the Department of Government, the School of Foreign Service, the Georgetown Public Policy Program, and the Law School, Georgetown has an exceptionally distinguished, diverse, and large group of faculty with an unusual blend of theoretical interests and practical policy experience.
The Department also hosts a vibrant intellectual life. The Political Theory Colloquium, the American Government field, and the Center for Democracy and Civil Society each co-ordinate a speaker series. In addition, the department has associations with numerous centers around campus, all of which lend to the vigorous and diverse resources available to both faculty and students.
