Learn from The University’s best and brightest.
HDO faculty are distinct in that they come from a variety of departments and programs. Both the BA and MA programs were developed by full-time University faculty. The MA program is unlike many other professional education programs in that we hire only full and associate professors at The University of Texas at Austin to teach our courses.

Below are profiles of faculty who are involved with HDO. To the right is a list of Core Faculty, which includes faculty currently teaching in the BA program, the MA program, or the Professional Seminars.
