The school's international affairs program is unparalleled. Often referred to as the "West Point of Foreign Service", the Walsh School of Foreign Service provides a background in international affairs with some of the best professors in the world. Reading is intensive, professors are fluent and amazing, and class topics range widely.

I am in the Georgetown Public Policy Institute, and I have come to realize that our classes and professors are some of the best offered at the university. Class size is never above 25 students per professor, and although the workload is extremely vigorous, I don't mind. I'm in a graduate program, preparing for my career, and I appreciate that the workload is challenging. GPPI offers a wide variety of courses, with an emphasis on quantitative methods and economic foundations, and I really value the opportunity to be trained in such a valuable skillset. The professors at Georgetown are some of the leaders in their fields, and have been nothing but helpful and accomodating of students' needs.
