Georgetown Ph.D

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any information of Georgetown's Government program? It says on their website that they have made huge gains in rankings, but am struggling to find information on their reputation. Any help would be great.

Depends on your area of interest within political science... some subfields are stronger than others. And they rely quite heavily on faculty who also teach in other parts of the University, and on adjunct faculty, many of whom are prominent in the DC policy world. Overall, it is a pretty strong department that has made some good hires of late. And being in DC gives you lots of access to policy folks if that is your interest.

The biggest downside, from what I have heard,is funding. They don't fund most of their incoming students, and competition for funding is pretty intense. If you search through old posts here about last year's admissions cycle, you can find more detail on that question...
