Located in the heart of D.C., our mission is to educate the next generation of international leaders, conduct research that advances understanding of important global issues, and engage the policy community in the United States and around the world.
The George Washington University has educated generations of international leaders and advanced the understanding of important global issues since 1821. The Elliott School of International Affairs, named in honor of former GW President Lloyd H. Elliott and his wife Evelyn, is dedicated to this mission. We train our students in the theory and practice of international affairs, offering them in-depth analysis of international economic, political, scientific and cultural issues. The School's curriculum is interdisciplinary; most Elliott School full-time faculty are jointly appointed in GW departments. Our widely respected faculty prepares Elliott School students for global careers in the public, private and non-profit sectors. Elliott School graduates are consistently sought after for challenging global careers. What's more, our Washington, DC location allows us to form strong relationships with public, private, and non-profit organizations that regularly employ Elliott School students and alumni.
