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 dual degree programs for full-time MSW students, full-time MSSP students, and full-time on-campus NPL students. Penn College of Arts & Sciences undergraduate students are also able to submatriculate into any of our master’s programs.

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.
