Journalism students should familiarize themselves with program policies, requirements, and student resources to get the most out of their academic experience at Georgetown.
Staying true to Georgetown’s commitment to “cura personalis” (care for the whole person), program administrators and staff place a high value on student advising and counseling sessions that are tailored to each student’s needs and educational goals. Students in the Journalism program are encouraged to seek out information and guidance as they plan their course of study. They may schedule one-on-one advising sessions at any point throughout their time in the program.
Advising sessions help students develop and clarify educational and career goals that are consistent with their personal goals, abilities, and interests. Additionally, the program staff provides guidance on leaves of absence, adding and dropping classes, deadlines, transfer credit requests, and enrollment questions.
Academic and administrative policies and procedures that affect all students in the School of Continuing Studies and at Georgetown University can be found on the Academic Affairs Handbook page.
