Complete the Two-Year Academic Plan
Students should complete this form in the summer before returning to campus for their junior year.
Visit the Career Development Center
Today’s students have more career options than ever. Students must be acutely aware of their own strengths, skills, motivations, and values to develop a sustainable career plan that meets the needs of an ever-changing job market. The McDonough Undergraduate Career Development Center supports students in this process of self-discovery, career education, and network-building to create a career that will carry them throughout life.
Attend SURF Info Session
Each summer, the McDonough Summer Undergraduate Research Fund (SURF) offers students the opportunity to apply for a grant to conduct research with a Georgetown McDonough professor on a topic of interest. Upon completion of the research project, students present their findings at the McDonough Undergraduate Research Symposium and are prepared to submit their projects to scholarly journals.
Explore Study Abroad Options
Georgetown believes that study abroad is an integral part of a student’s academic experience. The Office of Global Education offers options for study abroad in 40 countries.
There are many opportunities for McDonough students to connect with alumni who have made great strides within their professional fields. Alumni programming for McDonough undergraduates includes Host a Hoya, a one day job shadow opportunity during school break. Alumni mentoring is also facilitated through HoyaGateway, Georgetown’s internal portal that connects students with alumni all over the globe. Our alumni also host students in connection with the McDonough Career Development Center for DC area “Fridays in the Field” and national “Treks” to their workplaces, introducing students to fellow Hoyas at their companies for informal networking.
