Dual Degree Options

Add to your social work studies

The MSW dual degree options offer exciting interdisciplinary opportunities for social work students in the full-time, two-year program. Students work closely with their academic advisors in both degree programs to determine their individual courses of study. Within most dual degrees, students may choose either the clinical or macro concentration. In all situations, separate applications are required for each degree program. When they graduate, students receive a separate diploma for each degree that they complete.

Dual degree students who are receiving an SP2 grant will receive their award as stipulated in their admissions decision letter, throughout their time in the MSW program. Awards are distributed on a pro-rated basis in each term for each course that a student takes towards the MSW degree. Awards will be applied to courses that a student takes in the other degree program, provided that the course is fulfilling an MSW program requirement, and regardless of whether SP2 is the Home School in that term. Students must work closely with their academic advisor in order to ensure that the SP2 Office of Financial Aid is apprised of their course of study in order to correctly disburse awards each term.
