Informational Interviews:
This is a useful way for you to tell us about yourself and for you to learn more about our program and the admissions process. To schedule an on-campus interview please contact our program administrator at or at (202)-687-0596. You are invited to attend classes during your visit to Georgetown. 

Class Visits:
You are invited to attend classes during your visit to Georgetown. You should review the Recent Course Offerings to see what might be of interest to you. Please arrive at the classroom a few minutes early to let the professor know that you will attend class and plan on staying until the end or a scheduled break. Please also act as an observer rather than a participant.

Coffee with a Current Student:
