MSW Dual Degree

The College of Social Work participates in three dual degree programs which make it possible for students to earn both the Master of Social Work (MSW) and a second degree in public health (MPH), public administration (MPA), or law (JD) in less time and with fewer credit hours than would be necessary to complete the two degrees separately.
In all three dual degree programs, students must meet the admissions requirements and maintain the educational standards of each academic unit in order to earn both degrees.

Advanced standing students are eligible for all three dual degree programs. In addition, some studies for full two-year students can be completed during the summer sessions in all three of the dual degree programs.

Enrolling in dual degree programs can sometimes be accomplished while the student is completing the first year of studies towards the MSW. Normally, however, students should apply to both programs of interest at the same time. Substantial lead time is required for completing the admissions process. The JD degree, in particular, requires early planning because of the special application procedures used in Law School admissions.
