Information for Dual Degree Applicants

Penn SP2 promotes interdisciplinary collaboration between programs, across disciplines, and throughout Penn’s 12 graduate and professional schools. We are proud to offer 11 dual degree programs for full-time MSW students, 4 dual degree programs for full-time MSSP students, 1 dual degree program for full-time NPL students, and 2 submatriculation programs for Penn undergraduates.

In order to apply for a dual degree program (including the MSW/MSSP, MSW/NPL, and MSW/PhD programs), applicants must submit two separate applications. Each of these applications must include two sets of supporting documents, including transcripts, personal statements, and 3 letters of recommendation. Applications for each dual degree program will be reviewed independently of each other; it is possible to be admitted into one program and not the other.

Please note that the two applications cannot be completed concurrently; applicants must submit their first application before they can begin their second application.
