The Georgetown University Summer Institute in Urban Studies is an all-inclusive, on-campus summer program designed to provide currently matriculated Georgetown undergraduate students with an elite-level academic experience while offering a packaged price.
Students in the Institute will explore foundational topics in the field of Urban Studies: ecology and sustainability; city life and culture; racial and social inequity; and housing, education, and poverty. Students will choose three Urban Studies courses (from five options in a variety of disciplines), all of which fulfill Core Requirements. Students will also engage in a 3-credit Practicum Course which will include community-based learning and Ignatian pedagogy as methods of making deeper meaning of their Institute coursework.
