Degree Requirements M.S.W. (60 Hours) / M.P.H. (45 Hours)

The Department of Health Promotion, Education, and Behavior (HPEB) and the Collegeof Social Work (SOWK) offer a coordinated program that leads to the Master of Social Work and Master of Public Health degrees. Some courses fulfill requirements for bothportions of the dual degree. A dual degree program thus typically requires fewer semester hours in total than if the two programs were taken separately. Typically a student would take foundational social work courses during the first year, public health courses during the second year, and advanced social work courses with some public health courses during the third year. Each program provides a typical sequence for the courses; through academic advisement, specific courses are chosen for each individual student to satisfy both sets of program requirements. The MSW electives and one fieldwork social work requirement (9 credit hours total) can be satisfied by HPEB courses and practicum, while three HPEB course requirements and partial practicum credit (12 credit hours total) can be satisfied by social work courses and fieldwork. Thus the 60 -credit hour MSW and 45 - credit hour MPH can both be completed with a total of 84 credit hours.
