The Department of Government offers four M.A. programs in Washington, DC, and one M.A. program in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
M.A. in American Government
Combining theoretical insights with practical application, the Georgetown M.A. program in American Government offers its students a rich, stimulating environment in which to understand the nature of American politics – and to see it in action. The accelerated, twelve month program is designed to be small and intensive, and draws on its setting in the nation’s capital as well as the strengths of the Department of Government.
M.A. in Conflict Resolution
Georgetown University's two-year M.A. program in Conflict Resolution is a multidisciplinary course of study that combines world class research and practice. Core courses are offered in the Government Department, Psychology Department, and the McDonough School of Business. Electives may be taken across graduate programs on campus. Graduates are represented in a variety of government agencies and NGOs throughout the world and are prepared to pursue doctoral studies.
M.A. in Democracy and Governance
The goal of the Democracy and Governance Studies M.A. program is to provide graduate students with a systematic understanding of the history and theory of democracy, the forms and practices of democratic governance, the theory and practice of democratization, and the relationship between democracy and development.
M.A. in Development, Management and Policy
The Development Management and Policy Program is a two-year M.A. degree offered jointly by the Department of Government of Georgetown University (GU) and the School of Politics and Government of the Universidad Nacional de General San Martín (UNSAM) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The program combines a focus on global management issues with training in social science methods and social policy analysis. Pursuit of academic excellence and instilling a sense of social responsibility are the twin pillars for this program. This program is offered in its entirety in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
M.A. in International Law and Global Security
The International Law and Global Security program is an M.A. in Government designed to explore international law from both a legal and political perspective. The program is administered by the Government Department and is affiliated with the Institute for Law, Science and Global Security, which was established to promote teaching and research in the area of the intersection of international law and international relations. Recent developments such as the American refusal to ratify the Statue of the International Criminal Court, or the rejection of the Kyoto Agreement, or the efforts to gain particular language in a Security Council resolution on Iraq are difficult to assess in the absence of an understanding of legal rules and an appreciation of the ways in which these rules may affect behavior. This program is currently not accepting new applications.
