Graduate School Portfolio Programs

The University of Texas Office of Graduate Studies oversees more than two dozen graduate portfolio programs. These programs provide opportunities for development in a cross-disciplinary area of inquiry while completing the requirements for a master's degree or doctorate in a particular discipline. Completion of a portfolio program is certified on final transcripts, providing future employers with an indication of the student’s credentials in the field.

A portfolio program usually consists of four thematically related graduate courses and a research presentation. Portfolio programs in which MGPS students are often involved include Security Studies, Dispute Resolution, Nonprofit Studies and regional Area Studies.
