Center for Advanced Governmental Studies
The Johns Hopkins University Center for Advanced Governmental Studies (The Center)—located in Washington DC’s vibrant Dupont Circle neighborhood—encompasses several degrees and certificate programs designed to enhance understanding of the processes of government and global security.
Our mission, to provide a strong foundation of knowledge upon which innovative policy programs and promising leaders can develop, informs all of The Center’s initiatives.
Partnerships and Events
The Center serves as a forum for policy discussions and provides a venue for unbiased efforts to expand knowledge of the various governmental components, how they interact, and how they comply with their mandates in administering the affairs of state. We also aim to confront the complexities of the 21st-century security environment and contribute to the research and analysis that shapes the American response.
To these ends, the Center for Advanced Governmental Studies sponsors policy events and forums, and is involved in a number of government and private sector partnerships. We welcome opportunities for collaborations and initiatives that fit within The Center’s goals of educational exchange and workshop/training efforts that further the understanding of the roles and functions of government.
We host special events, policy workshops, and summits with embassies, government agencies, Washington think-tanks, and other organizations.
Governmental Studies Programs
Our programs bring together theory and practice in the study of government and its effects domestically and abroad while preparing individuals for leadership positions in the public and private sectors.
