In tandem with the Master of Social Work program, students have the option to pursue a second master's degree through one of the College's three dual degree programs. These programs offer our students a variety of opportunities for interdisciplinary study. To learn more about enrolling in a dual degree program, contact the MSW Academic Counselor, Brenda Davidson (292-7684).
Joint Masters Degree in Social Work (MSW) and Public Affairs (MA)
This dual degree program recognizes the important of public policy and the management of public programs upon the welfare of citizens and their communities. Students completing this option are prepared to serve as public sector leaders and advocates. For more information read about the master degree in Public Affairs on the John Glenn School of Public Affairs website. Also available on the website is the dual degree handbook.
Joint Masters Degree in Social Work (MSW) and Public Health (MPH)
This joint program recognizes the contributions of both disciplines to creation of healthy individuals and communities. This program consists of a three-year course of study emphasizing the acquisition of micro and macro level knowledge and skills geared toward the prevention of disease, the promotion of health behaviors, and the management and delivery of community based social and health programming. Students pursuing this option may complete either the Social Administration or Clinical MSW concentrations while also studying in one of two MPH specializations. For more information about the MPH specialization: Health behavior and health promotion, or Health services management and policy (PDF/44KB).
Joint Masters Degree in Social Work (MSW) and City and Regional Planning (MCRP)
Students in social work and city and regional planning both share a common interest in the impact of community and the environment upon the well-being of individuals. In this three year program students in each discipline acquire knowledge and skills in community theory and practice interventions in macro settings. Health, safety, and the ability to live well in today's urban environment are the domain of both professions. A combined degree allows students to acquire the skill and practice experience of both disciplines and to apply that combination of skills in communities. More information about the City and Regional Planning Program is available through the John Glenn School of Public Affairs.
