Dual-Degree M.S.W./M.P.P.

Master of Social Work/Master of Public Policy (M.S.W./M.P.P.)

The combined master of social work/master of public policy (M.S.W./M.P.P.) program offers students the opportunity to develop advanced policy practice skills with a focus on social justice and social welfare policy beyond the M.S.W. curriculum. Students will learn advanced policy skills to identify public issues, policy analysis to determine alternative solutions to those issues, and to become strong leaders in government, politics, and public and private organizations. The program is in keeping with social work's historical and growing emphasis on public policy concerns. 

The dual degree is a three-year program with a total of 81 credits. Students complete 36 credits through the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and 45 credits with the School of Social Work. 

Successful candidates for the dual-degree program will meet the admissions requirements of both schools.
