Experience residency week in College Station, Texas on the Texas A&M University campus and/or in Washington, DC at the Texas A&M University DC teaching location. Choose the residency week location and schedule that best fits your career goals and travel needs! You can plan both of your residency weeks in one specific location, or you can mix and match, spending your first residency week in College Station and your second residency week in Washington, DC (or vice versa). We are rolling out our new Washington, DC location in fall 2022 for PSAA 601 Public Service Foundations (with PSAA 675 in College Station, Texas), and anticipate that thereafter residency weeks will be scheduled in College Station, TX during the spring and summer semesters, and in Washington DC during the fall semesters.
Residency weeks are intensive weeks of academic learning that also provide an opportunity for face-to-face interactions with your colleagues in the program. Through residency week, you have opportunities to network with your Bush School faculty and staff, and to learn more about what it means to be a part of the highly acclaimed Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.
Students are responsible for all their travel costs to the residency week location, hotel costs, and incidentals. During residency week, on classroom session days, light morning and afternoon refreshments, and lunch is provided to the students by the program
