Democracy and Governance Studies
Practitioners and scholars in fields as diverse as public policy, international development, and security studies increasingly recognize that successful programs in their fields require effective and accountable governance. The Master of Arts in Democracy and Governance at Georgetown University seeks to understand the foundations of democratic and responsive government, how policymakers can create and implement policies to achieve these objectives, and prepares students for both careers and further study in these areas.
Situated in Washington, D.C., the multi-disciplinary degree is uniquely capable of teaching students how to transform theories of democracy and accountable government into effective programs. The program offers students the opportunity to combine courses taught by leading scholars and practitioners with jobs and internships in the sector.
