Georgetown University


Georgetown University is one of the world’s leading private academic and research institutions, offering a unique educational experience that prepares the next generation of global citizens to lead and make a difference in the world. 

Established in 1789, Georgetown is the nation’s oldest Catholic and Jesuit University. Drawing upon the 450-year-old legacy of Jesuit education, it provides students with a world-class learning experience focused on educating the whole person through exposure to different faiths, cultures and beliefs. 

Comprising nine undergraduate and graduate schools, the university enrolls approximately 7,000 undergraduate and 10,000 post-graduate students from a wide variety of religious, ethnic, and geographic backgrounds, including 130 foreign countries. Admission to Georgetown is very selective with the university admitting about 16% of those that apply.

Georgetown's most notable alumni are prominent in public life in the United States and abroad. Among them are former U.S. President Bill Clinton, former U.S. Chief Justice Edward Douglass White, dozens of U.S. governors and members of Congress, actor Bradley Cooper, Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud of the Saudi Arabia royal family and many others.
