A guide to what college rankings don't tell you.

Georgetown University

Washington, DC

Georgetown University says, 'The basic purpose of general education is the development of fundamental abilities such as inquiry, analysis, research, critical reading, creative thinking and expression, and communication in multiple modes and media. The Georgetown Core accomplishes these by expanding students' understandings of the traditions, histories, technologies, and ideas that have shaped the world. In addition, as participants in an intellectual community, students learn to communicate and act with civility, respect difference, address questions of diversity, and engage in difficult dialogues around challenging ideas.'
