The Georgetown University Master of Arts in German and European Studies (MAGES) is the preeminent European Studies program in the United States. 

MAGES prepares students to be leaders in transatlantic relations and European affairs. Unique among international affairs graduate programs, the MAGES degree features a strong interdisciplinary curriculum, dedicated world-class faculty, small class size, and professional development opportunities designed to prepare graduates to become leading professionals in government, non-governmental organizations, international business, or academia.

Develop Your European Expertise with a Master's in German and European Studies

During two years of intensive study, MAGES students widen their understanding of contemporary Europe and deepen their expertise in a personally chosen academic concentration.

Students take a series of core courses from distinguished faculty in their fields focused on Europe from the perspectives of the participating disciplines: cultural studies, economics, history, and political science (comparative politics and international relations). Working with faculty, students then design a concentration to focus on their area of specialization and choose courses from the breadth of classes offered within the BMW Center for German and European Studies, the School of Foreign Service, and Georgetown University.

Washington, DC: At the Heart of the Transatlantic Relationship

MAGES students have unparalleled access to international affairs in practice. Across Washington, students can attend talks by leaders in international affairs at think tanks and our fellow DC universities. Students also have the opportunity to intern on Capitol Hill or with federal agencies, NGOs, and advocacy organizations.

Prominent speakers frequently visit Georgetown University to discuss policy, announce new initiatives, and to engage with students on our historic Hilltop campus. 

CGES hosts adjunct faculty from the policy community who offer courses on their areas of expertise and who contribute to the relevance of the professional training that MAGES students receive in the program.
