Core Curriculum

Georgetown University, with its commitment to the Jesuit tradition, believes that modern men and women should reflect upon their relationship to the world, their fellow humans, and God.  All students must take a year of philosophy and a year of theology and religious studies.   The Problem of God (THEO-1000) and one intermediate-level theology elective fulfill the theology requirement. Introduction to Biblical Literature (THEO-1100) may be substituted for Problem of God or may be used as an intermediate-level elective.  (Transfer students are exempt from Problem of God and may select any two intermediate-level courses, including Introduction to Biblical Literature, to fulfill this requirement.)

Note: Effective Fall 2023, all main campus courses have been renumbered using a new 4-digit numbering system.
