CALL Core Curriculum &
Georgetown Courses

To best complement the students’ work experience and life downtown, the CALL offers a core suite of classes:

  • The CALL Internship Seminar offers students the chance to integrate their internship experience with their personal, academic, and professional goals. 
  • The CALL City Seminar allows students to experience the city through discussion/lecture, field trips, and meetings with community groups and leaders.  
  • Professional Development Workshops focused on leadership, negotiation, design thinking, professional communications, and failure.

The Self Designed Semester
