A Day in the Life of a GHD Student
From classes to studying in the lounge with peers to working one-on-one with faculty members, learn more about what it’s like to be a student at Georgetown’s Global Human Development Program!
An Education to Transform the World
We’re a practitioner-based program, designed to give students the knowledge and skills needed to tackle today’s global issues. Students learn quantitative skills, gain a broad base of knowledge on international development, and specialize in a development topic they are passionate about. The summer internship, DC internship, and Capstone Project provide real-word experiences in preparation for a career in development.

There are countless opportunities as a GHD student, from conversations with heads of state, diplomats, and development leaders hosted at Georgetown to interning at some of the top development organizations to consulting for a government, donor agency, NGO, business, foundation, or organization through the Capstone Project.
