Public Administration / Social Work, M.P.A. / M.S.W.



The College of Social Work and the Master of Public Administration program in the Department of Political Science offer a dual degree for students desiring to earn both the M.S.W. and the M.P.A. The program allows students to use electives in one program as degree fulfilling requirements in the other. Students are able to complete both degrees in fewer hours than would be required to complete the two separately. Advanced-standing students are able to complete the two programs in even fewer hours.

Degree Requirements M.P.A. (39 Hours) / M.S.W. (60 Hours)

This combined degree program enables students to earn two complementary, but distinct, graduate degrees. Core course requirements in one program are used as electives in the other, thus reducing the total number of hours required to complete both degrees to 87 credits. To be eligible, students must apply to, and be accepted by, both programs.
