A NEW TEACHING SITE FOR TEXAS A&M
Texas A&M University is opening a new teaching site in Washington, DC featuring The Bush School of Government and Public Service, a graduate program founded by the nation’s 41st president. The location is expected to open in the fall of 2020, with classes commencing in early 2021.
George H. W. Bush started the school in College Station, Texas, four years after his term as president ended in 1993, giving it a mission to prepare future leaders for careers in government and other forms of public service. Bush School offerings consistently rank among the best international affairs and public service graduate programs in the nation.
The new site is located within several blocks of the White House and other key government buildings, with ground floor access.
The Master of International Policy (MIP) degree aims to strengthen students’ ability to understand complex issues through rigorous coursework. Well-published scholars and seasoned practitioners from federal agencies lead in-depth classroom discussions, collaborate on research, and mentor students in and out of the classroom. The program seeks to expand students’ worldview and prepare them to advance their careers in international affairs.
“Next to my family, the Bush School students and their interest in serving their country is the most important thing in my life. I feel very good about leaving our world in their hands.”
