AUSTIN, Texas, March 12, 2019 — The LBJ School of Public Affairs ranks in the Top 10 in graduate public affairs schools in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report's (USNWR) 2020 edition of "Best Graduate Schools," released Tuesday morning. The LBJ School showed gains in homeland security and emergency management, nonprofit management, public finance and budgeting, public management, public policy analysis, and social policy. International global policy and administration remained at No. 7, the same rank as in 2019.
U.S. News & World Report's graduate rankings, separate from the magazine’s yearly rankings of undergraduate programs, are among the most widely regarded ratings in higher education. Note: The U.S. News rankings of public affairs programs are based solely on opinions of each program’s quality as rated by academic experts at peer institutions.
The LBJ School, one of the nation's top 10 graduate public affairs schools, makes a difference, not only within the walls of academia, but also in the public and social dialogue of the world. Contributing viable solutions to society is the LBJ School's legacy and its benchmark. Its effectiveness in channeling the purpose and passion of students into professional careers is evident in the success of more than 4,300 graduates who are the living legacy of President Johnson's bold and fearless action.
