Schedule a Visit

Notice: The Department of English remains committed to providing our standard level of excellent service. Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, we moved to full virtual instructional, research, and administrative continuity during our regular business hours as part of Georgetown University’s response to COVID-19. There will be no one in the main office during this time.

Though we cannot continue scheduling prospective student visits in-person with our faculty members, we will do our best to schedule them instead via video chat using Zoom.

Thank you in advance for your patience as we aim to respond to each individual query that comes our way as promptly as we can. Take care, and be well!
