Combining group exercises, discussions with policymakers and foreign policy officials, and visits to renowned D.C. institutions, Georgetown's Foreign Policy Academy introduces you to the many components that guide 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 the methods used to formulate and implement policies.
