MPP and MPA Programs

The University of Texas at Austin, Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs (Johnson) - MPAff and MGPS 

Program Comparison Highlights

Institutional Structure: The Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs is an autonomous graduate school within the University of Texas at Austin.

Note on History: "Since our founding in 1970, the LBJ School has built a proud tradition of public service and cutting-edge research on the most important public policy challenges of our time. ... After 40 years of education and service, the LBJ School has awarded 3,536 master's degrees and, since 1996, 53 doctorates." (At http://www.utexas.edu/lbj/about/welcome, accessed 18 May 2015.)

Curriculum Design: The Texas LBJ School, like the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs, offers both a public affairs degree (the MPAff) and an international affairs degree (the MGPS) based on differences in degree requirements within a common set of course offerings. The two Texas LBJ degrees differ in the fraction of time the typical student spends on what we call archetypal public affairs subjects and archetypal international affairs subjects. Our PEACO calculations below suggest that typical students in the non-specialization MPAff take about 37% of their course work in archetypal public affairs subjects and 13% in archetypal international affairs subjects whereas MGPS students on average take about 30% of their course work in archetypal public affairs subjects and 29% in archetypal international affairs subjects. However, this mix is highly dependent on specialization (MPAff students may select and MGPS students must select a specialization). For example, the PEACO calculations below show that MPAff students who select the International Affairs specialization can take as much as 53% of their coursework in archetypal international affairs subjects, a higher fraction than students in most of the MGPS specializations. The typical MPAff students take 79% of their course work in policy-oriented subjects and 21% in management-oriented subjects, and 23% of their course work in subjects with high math-economics content. The numbers are similar for typical MGPS students: 80% policy-oriented subjects, 20% management-oriented subjects, 23% high math-economics subjects. The MPAff requires 16 courses (48 credit hours) to graduate and the MGPS 16.3 (49 credit-hours). These figures place both the MPAff and the MGPS in the "high course requirement, highly policy-oriented, higher math-economics content" curricular type, along with such programs as the Princeton MPA, the Columbia MPA, the Columbia MIA, and the Chicago MPP (see MPP/MPA Curricular Types). Among peers in its curricular type, the both degrees have a relatively high number of courses and a high proportion of courses taught within the school.

Professional Program Features: The LBJ School has a Career Resources facility (http://www.utexas.edu/lbj/careers) to assist with job search and advising, and provides workshops on resume preparation and interviewing, as well as recruiting events. The School has an active policy research program "dedicated to finding practical, innovative solutions to public problems and to deepening our understanding of the public policy process. Through policy centers and curriculum-based research projects, faculty and students tackle many of the issues facing our nation's governments: how to control the spiraling cost of public services while maintaining an adequate safety net for those in need; how to empower residents of inner cities to revitalize their neighborhoods; how to balance environmental concerns with economic development goals." (At http://www.utexas.edu/lbj/centers, accessed 17 March 2015.) The five centers are: Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law; Ray Marshall Center for the Study of Human Resources; Center for Health and Social Policy (CHASP); RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service; and Center for International Energy and Environmental Policy.  

Program Summary

Website: http://www.utexas.edu/lbj/ 

University: University of Texas at Austin

Location: Austin, Texas, USA

Degree: Master of Public Affairs (MPAff); Master of Global Policy Studies (MGPS)

Marketing Approach: "The Master of Public Affairs (MPAff) program is designed to prepare leaders with the knowledge and skills to address critical public policy challenges in city, state, and federal government agencies, private businesses, and nonprofit organizations. The MPAff program allows you to tailor your educational experience through dual degree programs, specializations, and practical internship opportunities. Drawing upon our world-renowned, multidisciplinary faculty, a global network of alumni, and the resources of The University of Texas, our graduates are uniquely qualified to shape public policy in the 21st century.” (At http://www.utexas.edu/lbj/mpaff, accessed 5 March 2014)
                                         "The Master of Global Policy Studies (MGPS) is a degree designed for the 21st century globalized world, offering a view of international policy making that is both relevant and solution-based. Students benefit from rigorous, innovative and multi-disciplinary coursework taught by faculty who are preeminent voices in foreign policy and diplomacy, security, energy, economics, trade, environment and development. Graduates of the program are equipped with the advanced skills to be leading professional policymakers and practitioners in the modern world." (At http://www.utexas.edu/lbj/mgps, accessed 18 March 2014)

Degrees Awarded per Year: Approximately 105. Estimate based on: "The LBJ School typically receives approximately 700 applications for its two master's programs and enrolls an entering class of approximately 150 students." (at https://www.utexas.edu/lbj/degreeprograms/mpaff/faqs, accessed 18 May 2015 and the Wikipedia entry that in Spring 2014 there were 215 MPAff students and 102 MGPS students, at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyndon_B._Johnson_School_of_Public_Affairs, accessed 18 May 2015.) 

Academic Unit within University: The Lyndon B. Johnson School is an autonomous graduate school within the University of Texas at Austin.

Related Academic Units and Degrees: The School offers 16 joint programs (degrees which can be obtained concurrently with the MPAff). It also offers a Master of Global Policy Studies (which is “dedicated to the understanding of how policy is made, analyzed and evaluated relevant to international issues, including foreign policy and diplomacy, security, trade, environment and development.”), an Executive Master in Public Leadership, and a Ph.D. in Public Policy. The school also offers a variant of its MPAff/MGPS degrees for candidates who intend to pursue careers in Washington, D.C. Candidates pursue the first-year curriculum of their respective degree in Austin, before completing a six-month internship at the school’s “LBJ Washington Center” in D.C. The duration of this variant is 18 months. 

Posted Tuition: Approximately $21,368 USD for Texas residents, and approximately $41,068 USD for non-residents (at http://www.utexas.edu/lbj/students/tuition, accessed 5 March 2015).

Concentration/Curriculum Overview: The MPAff program is organized so that formal coursework in theory and relevant analytical skills are reinforced with ongoing opportunities for practical application. In order to enroll in the quantitative core sequence, an entering student must have completed either formal undergraduate coursework in calculus and statistics or passed the validation exam. A required internship between the first and second years provides direct contact with the operating realities of government, nonprofits, and advocacy organizations. Students may follow a general program of study or may choose to declare a specialization by focusing the scope of their second-year studies in one of seven policy areas: International Affairs; Natural Resources and the Environment; Nonprofit and Philanthropic Studies; Public Management and Leadership; Social and Economic Policy; Technology, Innovation, and Information Policy; Urban and State Affairs. A Mid-Career MPAff program is offered for students with substantial (typically 10 years) of policy-level experience in public affairs.

The MGPS core coursework explains contemporary globalization and the global policy process and builds analytical and professional communications skills. The program reinforces the core with ongoing opportunities for practical application, including a required second year project in which groups of students work with a faculty mentor on a real-world policy research project. Students also complete a required internship that provides direct contact with the operating realities of government, multinational business, or non-governmental organizations. Students declare one of six specializations (or a custom specialization) so that the MGPS program combines a broad view of global policy with substantial depth in a particular policy area. The specializations are: Development; Energy, Environment, and Technology; Global Governance and International Law; International Trade and Finance; Regional International Policy; Security, Law, and Diplomacy. Students must demonstrate (via coursework or exam) a level of second language proficiency equal to or above the completion of the fourth semester at the college level in one foreign language. International students whose native language is not English are considered to have satisfied this requirement.

Additionally, the LBJ School  has developed dual degree programs to give LBJ students the option to pair a second complementary master’s degree with the MPAff or the MGPS degrees, completing both Master’s degree programs in less time than would be required if they were pursued independently.

MPAff and MGPS Degree Requirements
