The Washington & the World Academy at Georgetown University immerses you in an exciting exploration of Washington, D.C., through a global lens. You'll gain an inside look at the curriculum of Georgetown's renowned Walsh School of Foreign Service (SFS) while learning from distinguished SFS professors. 

With the creation of a new world order after World War II, the United States came to be the indisputable leader of the so-called Free World.

What will happen to the Atlantic Alliance? Will other great powers—like Russia and China—will the possible void? What will be the future of American ideas, such as democracy and freedom?

The Washington & the World Academy will take you on an engaging journey where you’ll explore the role of the U.S. in the world and develop a broader perspective of how the changing dynamics may affect American leadership on a global level.
