All MSW students are eligible for the MSW/MPH joint degree: Full-time students, PM/Extended Study students, and Advanced Standing students. Full-time and PM/Extended Study applicants start the joint degree in the MSW program. Applicants eligible for MSW Advanced Standing must start the joint degree in the MPH program and so should apply to the MPH program and enroll in MPH coursework prior to applying to the MSW program. For more information please contact Associate Dean Christopher Mitchell.
Students must apply to and be admitted separately to both the School of Public Health and the College of Social Work master’s degree programs. The policies of each program with respect to admission requirements, degree requirements, and other academic requirements are applicable. To be considered for admission students must take the GRE (required for admission to the MPH), have earned a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution, and satisfy other application requirements for each college.
Transferring into MSW/MPH joint degree program:
Students who enter either of the individual degree programs and later decide to transfer into the joint program may do so before entering their second year of study if they meet the admissions requirements of the other degree program. Students must apply and be accepted into both individual degree programs.
