MPAff/MPH - UT Austin LBJ School of Public Affairs

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 Public Affairs (MPAff) degree and the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree. The dual degree program combines advanced studies of government, nonprofit agencies, and policy with a focus on the issues, organizations, and skills needed to make meaningful contributions in the growing field of public health. The program is structured so that students can earn both degrees simultaneously in approximately three academic years.
