The LBJ School of Public Affairs recognizes the importance of urban and state affairs through its teaching, research, and outreach activities. In the Urban and State Affairs Specialization, students have the opportunity to study the public policy and governance issues in the cities and regions of Texas, the U.S., and abroad and thereby prepare themselves for professional careers in the public and non-governmental sectors. Students in this specialization may wish to avail themselves of courses in the Community and Regional Planning Program and the Department of Geography. There are several research units at the LBJ School and elsewhere on campus that conduct research on urban and state affairs.
