Georgetown’s rigorous academic programs prepare graduates for careers in education as teachers, policymakers and administrators. The Georgetown Public Policy Institute offers master’s degrees and has strengths in primary, secondary and higher education policy. We offer a M.A. in teaching English as a second language as well as bilingual education. Througha variety of opportunities, including community-based learning and dialogue on pedagogy in pre-K, K-12 and higher education, many students engage in the community as educators before they graduate.
In addition, the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship (CNDLS) supports faculty and graduate students with tools, resources, and opportunities for new learning environments. CNDLS began with a mission to bridge a historic gulf between pedagogy and technological advances, and today integrates teaching and learning at Georgetown with the latest educational technology. Georgetown’s largest employer of graduating seniors is often Teach For America, whose corps members teach in underserved urban and rural public schools for a minimum of two years.
