The academic heart of the School of Foreign Service in Qatar lies in educating our students. We offer undergraduates, who come from Qatar, across the region, and throughout the world, a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service (BSFS), a multidisciplinary liberal arts degree with an international focus.
Our mission builds on the tradition of Georgetown University as a leading student-centered research institution. As part of our commitment to educating the whole person, we promote academic integrity through our Academic Honor System and our students pursue Service-Learning initiatives both in Qatar and across the region.
Our faculty are drawn from the Main Campus of Georgetown University or recruited from around the world. The School of Foreign Service in Qatar possesses a library that supports the learning, teaching, and research goals of our students and faculty while serving as a resource for the entire Doha community.
In addition to our undergraduate educational mission, we support scholarly research and the free exchange of ideas in the Center for International and Regional Studies (CIRS), which fosters original research, especially on the Gulf region and the Middle East, and supports the primary and secondary educational system of Doha.
Students from other universities who wish to study at SFS-Qatar, either for a semester or as part of our Summer School program, should apply through the Office of International Programs. See the Office of International Programs for information on visas, academic requirements, and other resources specific to international students at Georgetown.
