As the health and well being of our students and community is important right now, Georgetown English Language Center classes will be operating in a remote learning format—using Zoom video conferencing to mirror a traditional classroom with regular interaction between professors and students—for the Spring 2021 session. Please refer to Georgetown's Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Center for the latest updates and guidance.
Designed for working professionals and university graduates, the Intensive Professional English program offers opportunities to refine your English skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. You’ll also develop your knowledge of American business culture and public policy practices. While exploring these fields, the program emphasizes the critical leadership and networking skills you need for success. Offered as 8-week modules, each professional module is independent and may be taken separately or as a sequence.
As a student in the fall modules, you’ll study the principles of American business practices while networking and interacting with native English speakers in professional settings. You’ll also analyze case studies, develop business plans, and explore topics such as microfinance, negotiation, and business ethics.
As a student in the spring modules, you’ll study the principles of organizational behavior, public policy, and nonprofit administration, with a focus on leadership and community engagement. You’ll engage in independent field work involving the nonprofit sector and have opportunities to visit government agencies at the local, state, and federal level.
