The year-long program will consist of ten 3-credit modules consisting of 18 courses and one capstone visit to Washington D.C. Travel and health conditions permitting, nine modules (18 courses) classes will taught at the Georgetown University-Qatar campus, predominantly by faculty affiliated with Georgetown’s main campus in Washington visiting Doha for four-day intensive teaching residences. The tenth module will take place at Georgetown’s main campus in Washington, D.C. It will be a four-day course session to include intensive sessions with Georgetown faculty members and meetings with policymakers and international institutions.
The modules will cover:
1) conflict resolution and negotiation;
2) international trade and development;
3) science and technology;
4) human security;
5) geopolitics and approaches to foreign policy;
6) regional studies;
7) soft power, culture and diplomacy;
8) transnational security challenges;
9) international law and institutions; and
10) policy-making and international institutions.
In most cases, the two courses in each module will be offered during different 4-day residencies. For example, part 1 of the Geopolitics and Approaches to Foreign Policy Module will be taught in the fall and part 2 in the spring.
