The Bush School of Government and Public Service is home to two masters' programs (MPSA-Public Service & Administration; MPIA-International Affairs) and multiple online graduate certificates. The School offers a challenging curriculum, an innovative leadership development program, and opportunities for both professional growth and public service.
The Bush School's degrees provide a professional education for those seeking careers in the public or nonprofit sectors or in the governmental-focused private sector. Students can focus studies through a number of tracks and concentrations. The MPSA offers five areas, including nonprofit management, state/local government, and various policy areas and the MPIA has eight, including American diplomacy, intelligence, international politics, conflict & development, international development, regional studies, and more. Both degrees integrate a capstone project and a professional summer internship (those in IA can substitute a summer cultural/language study). The nonpartisan programs enroll 70-90 students each per year, and all students receive some level of scholarship aid, from $1-30K a year, which currently allows ALL degree students to pay Texas rates of approximately $11K a year.
The Certificate in Advanced International Affairs (CAIA), Certificate in Homeland Security (CHLS), and Certificate in Nonprofit Management (CNPM) are for individuals who desire professional development in 4-5 courses. All three are available online. Limited enrollment also occurs in our on-campus China Studies Certificate. More certificate details, including courses and admissions, are on our website.
