Capstone Project


The Capstone Project is the culmination of the student’s two years of course work and experiences at Georgetown. It is an integral part of the core curriculum taken during the second year of the Global Human Development Program, the Management, Analysis & Practice in Development I & II (GHDP 598 & GHDP 599). GHDP 598 & 599 are designed to provide support and direction to students writing their Capstone project. Working in pairs, the Project is designed to provide students with the opportunity to bring together the knowledge and skills they have acquired throughout the program and apply them to a real-world challenge identified jointly with an organization working in the development field (the client). The client could be a government, donor agency, NGO, business, foundation, or other organization working in development.
