Georgetown University Press, founded in 1964, is an American publishing house that publishes forty new books a year. The press is a member of the Association of American University Presses (AAUP) and a founding member of the Association of Jesuit University Presses (AJUP).[1]

It supports the academic mission of Georgetown University by publishing scholarly books and journals for a worldwide readership. These publications, written by an international group of authors, are peer-reviewed works. Georgetown University Press publishes a range of intellectual perspectives that reflect the academic and institutional strengths of Georgetown University.

Books are published in five subject areas: bioethics; international affairs and human rights; languages and linguistics; political science, public policy and public management; and religion and ethics. The press publishes Al-Kitaab, the most widely used Arabic language learning textbook series at the college and professional level.[citation needed] The series begins with Alif-Baa: An Introduction to Arabic Letters and Sounds, and continues to help students achieve proficiency in the Arabic language. It also publishes language textbooks and interactive digital materials for languages including Spanish, Mandarin, Iraqi Arabic, Moroccan Arabic, Syrian Arabic, Portuguese, Tajiki, and Uzbek.
