The McCourt School offers a thriving ecosystem of student organizations, from student government to organizations whose interest areas focus on specific policy issues or regions of the world.
The McCourt School values our students being engaged in the local, national, and global communities. Our experiential learning programs allow our students to take classroom theory and apply it to real-life challenges.
The McCourt School has a variety of opportunities for students to interact and work with faculty and conduct research, helping to develop potential policy solutions and participate at the cutting edge of key policy debates.
Meet our Students
McCourt has an ideal combination of academic and applied professors, which makes it suitable for students with varying academic and career backgrounds.
Because I am pivoting careers (moving from teaching to politics), McCourt was the best choice for me because it will give me the quantitative skills I need to be successful in the policy sector.
Since the McCourt School of Public Policy is located in the heart of the policy-making world in Washington, DC there are many opportunities to intern and work with NGOs, congressional leaders, think tanks, and many other institutions.
Opportunities at Georgetown
