    Combining lectures, talks by policymakers, visits to a number of foreign Embassies, crisis simulations, and group discussions, Georgetown's Foreign Policy Academy introduces you to the many components that inform and create U.S. foreign policy.

    Throughout your time in the program, you'll develop your critical thinking and interpretive skills while examining key international crises and world leaders' responses and policy choices in a global arena. You'll also analyze the factors that affect the decision-making process and theories and methods used to formulate and implement policies.

    By the time you complete the program, you'll have a deeper understanding of American foreign and defense policy, the complexities of terrorism threats, the influence of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and think tanks, strategies for aid and democracy-building, and the underpinnings of foreign commerce and trade policies.
