Learn About LBJ

The LBJ School boasts a dynamic community of students, faculty and staff all working toward the same goal of making an impact on the world. One of the best ways to experience that community is to visit campus and let us show you around!

Take a look at our webinars for more information on applying, read how visiting the school helped MGPS student Sam Lee make his decision — and drop us a line.

Attend a Small Group Information Session

Sign up to attend one of our Prospective Student Information Sessions. We encourage you to plan your visits during times of the year when classes are in session and students are on campus. Interaction with current students and faculty can provide you with a wealth of information for the graduate school selection process. If you're unable to attend a regularly scheduled info session, you can set up a one-on-one meeting or phone call by emailing a graduate coordinator.

Interact with Students and Faculty

If you're interested in interacting with current students or faculty, we can put you in touch with them as well. Set up a meeting or tour with one of our student ambassadors by sending an email to our Admissions team to make an introduction. Our graduate faculty advisers are often available to meet with students as well. Learn more about those advisers and how to contact them.

Experience an LBJ School Class

Sitting in on an actual LBJ class can be a great way to get a feel for the community and the program. Use the course schedule to find a course that interests you, and email its professor directly to set up a possible time.

Experience UT Austin

Any good university educates its students. But a great university—one with monumental impact and a tradition of intellectual leadership—does more. It transforms lives on a grand scale.

Or, as we like to say, what starts here changes the world.
