LBJ School Graduate Portfolio Programs

Graduate portfolio programs are opportunities for master's and PhD students to obtain credentials in a cross-disciplinary academic area while completing their degree requirements.  Graduate portfolio programs are not degree programs.  To be eligible to participate in a graduate portfolio program, students must be admitted and currently enrolled in one of the university's graduate degree programs.
