GEORGE BUSH SCHOOL OF GOVERNMENT AND PUBLIC SERVICETHE SCHOOL HAS BECOME ONE OF THE LEADING PUBLIC AND INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS GRADUATE SCHOOLS IN THE NATION. ONE OF THE TEN SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES AT TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY, THE SCHOOL OFFERS MASTER'S LEVEL EDUCATION FOR STUDENTS WANTING CAREERS IN PUBLIC SERVICE. THE SCHOOL IS STILL RANKED IN THE TOP 12 PERCENT OF THE GRADUATE PUBLIC AFFAIRS SCHOOLS IN THE NATION. THE SCHOOL'S PHILOSOPHY IS BASED ON THE BELIEF OF ITS FOUNDER, GEORGE H.W. BUSH, THAT PUBLIC SERVICE IS A NOBLE CALLING, A BELIEF THAT CONTINUES TO SHAPE ALL ASPECTS OF THE CURRICULUM, RESEARCH, AND STUDENT EXPERIENCE. THERE ARE THREE ELEMENTS THAT FORM ALL ACTIVITIES AT THE SCHOOL. FIRST IS THE CULTIVATION OF PRINCIPLED LEADERS. SECOND, THE SCHOOL RECOGNIZES THE VITAL IMPORTANCE OF THE RESEARCH CONDUCTED BY ITS FACULTY AND RESEARCH INSTITUTES. THIRD, THE SCHOOL HAS AS ONE OF ITS CORNERSTONES THE IDEA OF GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY THROUGH PUBLIC SERVICE. AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE BUSH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE IS THE OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE IN PUBLIC SERVICE OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM, INCLUDING A SUMMER INTERNSHIP AND STUDENT-LED PUBLIC SERVICE PROJECTS THAT ENABLE STUDENTS TO APPLY WHAT THEY LEARN IN EXTERNAL SETTINGS.
