Arts & Culture

Theater, music, dance, film, painting, sculpture … DC is an exciting city for arts and culture, and Georgetown partners with some of the city’s best cultural organizations to produce groundbreaking work. Not only do you have DC’s world-class arts institutions right on your doorstep, you’ll find endless opportunities to immerse yourself in the university’s lively campus arts scene, too.

“I valued the opportunity to bond with alumni in the media and entertainment industry during the GEMA Externship Program.”

“Our interdisciplinary focus and social justice mission allows students to engage with artists and consider how they want to contribute to the world.”

“I took a museum studies elective and learned how art can induce a shift or change in people – increasing empathy, compassion and tolerance.”
