Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service conferred the first graduate degree in international affairs in 1922, pre-dating the U.S. State Department’s adoption of the term “foreign service.” Since then, more than 4,000 students have completed the Master of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) degree. Graduates have attained notable success in careers with national governments, international organizations, private businesses, and civil society groups.
MSFS is committed to helping students build challenging and rewarding career paths after graduation. Through both curricular and extracurricular activities, students create their own personal network of career advocates on and off campus. Each graduate leaves MSFS equipped with knowledge and skills that can be applied over a lifetime.
MSFS seeks to foster a passion for civic engagement and the pursuit of social justice in all its students, encouraging a lifelong dedication to serving the greater, global community. With your support, we are able to achieve our mission of leadership in service to the global community.
