Texas A&M University will now offer a collaborative Masters and Ph.D. degree.

The degree will be offered at the Bush School of Government and Public Service and it was designed to prepare individuals to work in the field of education policy.

Students who complete the program successfully will receive both a Master of Public Service and Administration (MPSA) degree and a Ph.D. in Educational Administration.

The collaborative Degrees Program (CDP) is geared toward individuals who seek academic careers focused on research in the multidisciplinary field of education policy.

Lori Taylor, who is leading the Bush School part of the initiative says “Students will work with a team of highly regarded public policy an dedication faculty, whose expertise ranges from the economics of education, education law and leadership to the politics of education, school accountability and finance, and the social foundations of schooling.”

The program has been designed to accommodate a relatively small class size and admissions will be limited to new or existing Bush School students with a passion for education policy and aptitude for analytical thinking.
