About School of Foreign Service

Walsh School of Foreign Service (SFS) was founded in 1919—100 years ago—to prepare the U.S. to engage on the global stage and has been preparing future leaders to make the world safer, more equitable, more prosperous, and more peaceful ever since. Fr. Edmund A. Walsh’s vision was a school that would prepare students for all major forms of foreign representation — whether commercial, financial, consular, or diplomatic. 

Created as the first U.S. school of international affairs, the Walsh School of Foreign Service vowed to train young leaders to serve the world. Now in its second century, at a time of unprecedented global uncertainty, SFS is called once again to prepare a new generation for foreign service—in new ways that reflect the challenges ahead.

The Georgetown University undergraduate program is a legacy of academic excellence combined with a devotion to humanitarian service. Students study a core curriculum in international affairs, government, economics, history, theology, philosophy, and geography, with a language proficiency requirement. More than 70% of SFS students spend time abroad engaging with the global community during their undergraduate experience.

In a continually changing and unpredictable world, the overarching mission of the School is to prepare women and men to be creative leaders with a commitment to service and an understanding of the ethical component of global affairs. In order to achieve this mission, the School works to ensure that our graduate students have the proper substantive understanding of the international system and the necessary skills to thrive in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors of international affairs.

The Walsh School of Foreign Service awarded its first graduate degree in the early 1920s. Since that time, the SFS has continued to develop an innovative approach to graduate education for professional careers in international affairs.
