MAJOR INFORMATION

School of Social Work and the College of Public Health offer a concurrent degree option with M.P.H. concentrations in either Maternal and Child Health or Behavioral Health.

For social work students seeking the concurrent -degree, expanded study in public health encourages a well-balanced macro-micro orientation to clinical practice. Such expansion can provide the social work student with specific skills that
result in comprehensive and effective client interventions in healthcare settings. The fundamental methodological tools of public health, such as biostatistics, epidemiology, and health management and evaluation, further assist the social worker
in targeting the needs of individuals and communities. The MSW/MPH concurrent -degree option is a two to three year fulltime course of study.

ADMISSION INFORMATION

Students may apply either simultaneously for the Concurrent Master's Degree Students (indicating this intention on their application forms) or may add Social Work after admission to the Public Health Major, or add Public Health after admission to the Social Work Major. Applications for the Concurrent Master's Degree may be obtained from the Admissions Office at the School of Social Work or at the College of Public Health. The application should be signed by the Chair of the Social Work Graduate office and then returned the College of Public Health. Admissions are conducted independently and admission to one major in no way guarantees admission in a different major.
