The LBJ School’s Ph.D. program has been in place since 1992 and has approximately 35 doctoral students working at various stages of the degree program. Each year, the program admits four to seven new students, of whom approximately one-third are international.


In addition to our excellent faculty members, all of whom are closely engaged in teaching and research, the LBJ School offers connections to several major research centers in the school with foci ranging from health and social policy, philanthropy, and nonprofit management to international security and politics — and our doctoral students have access to an extensive network of alumni and connections throughout the U.S. and abroad.

Join Professor Victoria E. Rodríguez to talk about the Ph.D. program, from the core program to research and dissertation.
