Graduate Admissions

Applying to the Democracy and Governance Master Program

Thank you for your interest in the MA in Democracy and Governance at Georgetown University. Applicants come from a variety of academic backgrounds, including international relations/affairs, political science, English, and history. Others have academic experience in fields of study not directly related to their graduate school interests, such as engineering and music. Many also have work experience in international development, public policy, and communications, as well as overseas experience thanks to work or study.

The Office of Graduate Admissions is available to help you as you plan the next big step in your professional or academic career. Please read these important next steps in the admissions process. We look forward to receiving your application!
