International Migration Studies

Curriculum & Schedule

During the Spring & Summer semesters, professional development and certificate classes will be offered in two formats: Flex Learning and Online. Flex Learning classes are taught in real-time by Georgetown instructors using Zoom video conferencing. Online classes are taught using Canvas, our learning management system, and can be completed at your own pace. Both formats are designed to provide our professional learners with a high-quality, engaging educational experience. For more information on which format is best for you, please contact Program Support at pdcprograms@georgetown.edu.
