Available Courses

The course list for 2017-2018 is not yet available.  However, an illustrative of the 2016-2017 courses available to Georgetown students can be found on the NUS website.  Approved fall students will receive updated information from the NUS Registrar over the summer. Students approved for the spring term will receive updated information in the fall.  Note that different classes may be offered in the spring than those offered in the fall.

Credit is awarded based on the amount of time classes meet. A four credit course at NUS converts into three credits at Georgetown Law. Students can transfer back a maximum of 14 credits towards their J.D. degree.

Because course offerings may change from year to year, it is possible that not all eligible courses are listed above.  Participants in this program who wish to enroll in any course not listed above must contact the Office of Transnational Programs by email to request approval.  Participants should not expect to receive credit for courses that are not expressly approved by OTP.

Grades at NUS are assessed on a A-F scale, and grading policy information can be found here.
