Available Courses

The course list for 2021-2022 is not yet available. However, an illustrative of the 2020-2021 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 in accordance with the ABA’s standard class formula (12.5 hours of class time including exam time, plus 30 hours of preparation and studying outside of class, per one credit hour.) Students may be asked to verify the number of minutes each course meets in order to confirm the number of credits that the student will receive upon completion of the program. See the Study Abroad Policy for details.

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.
