The world has changed dramatically since the LBJ School of Public Affairs opened its doors in the early 1970s. The issues of our time are increasingly complex and multidisciplinary. Advances in science and technology have created enormous new opportunities for prosperity and peace but also new dangers and challenges that include global warming, health care, poverty, labor issues, and weapons proliferation. The school intends to become a global leader in preparing current and future leaders to meet the most pressing challenges of the 21st century.

An important program has changed, and will continue to change, the school’s landscape. The master of global policy studies (MGPS) is the first new degree since the school’s inception. The degree – more practical than academic – aims to equip professionals with the skills and knowledge they need to become leaders in a global society. The multidisciplinary initiative retools the school’s academic and physical infrastructure, including research, course offerings, faculty and student recruitment, public outreach, and buildings.
