The Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin and UTHealth School of Public Health offer a dual degree program leading to two graduate degrees, the Master of Global Policy Studies (MGPS) degree and the Master of Public Health (MPH). The MGPS/MPH dual degree program combines advanced studies of globalization with a focus on the issues, organizations, and skills needed to make meaningful contributions in the emerging field of international health. The program is structured so that students can earn both degrees simultaneously in approximately three academic years.
