The Master of Arts in German and European Studies (MAGES)
Program in the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University is actively recruiting for its Fall 2019 entering class.
MAGES is a professional, interdisciplinary MA program that offers students with strong foreign language skills and a deep affinity for Europe the opportunity to craft unique thematic or regional concentrations for their graduate studies. Our graduates pursue a wide variety of careers in the government, non-governmental and non-profit organizations, and the private sector. We have found that many of our top applicants come from liberal arts backgrounds and have completed substantial coursework in European languages. For students or recent graduates from your department who have interests in global business, governmental affairs, policy research, or international and transatlantic relations, this program could be an ideal complement to their undergraduate studies at Amherst College.
We are also pleased to announce the Flynn Memorial Scholarship, a full tuition scholarship that will be awarded to one student in the incoming MAGES class for the full two years of the program. This scholarship is named for Gregory Flynn, one of the founding faculty members of the BMW Center for German and European Studies. We are reaching out to you with the hope that you will nominate a promising candidate for this prestigious award.
Please use this link to submit your nomination by October 21, 2018.
