Advising and Internships
Career advising is an integral part of each student’s experience. CERES directors provide individual counseling throughout the course of study to ensure the academic program is integrated with professional objectives. Many students hold career-related internships while in the program, including at organizations in the Washington, DC area that offer regionally related internships.
Current GU students and alumni can download the CERES list of regionally related internships. Please note: you must have a GU Box account to access the file.
CERES students benefit from professional and discipline-specific career services through the School of Foreign Service Graduate Career Center (GCC), which offers workshops, recruiting events and one-on-one counseling to ensure that students have the skills and resources they need to find the career they desire.
