The School of Social Work at Rutgers and the Princeton Theological Seminary offer an accelerated program in social work and ministry leading to the master of social work (M.S.W.) and master of divinity (M.Div.) degrees. The program is designed for students who expect to enter forms of ministry requiring competence in the disciplines of theology and social work.
The dual M.Div./M.S.W. program allows a student to complete both degrees in four years of full-time study. The first two years of study are spent exclusively at the Princeton Theological Seminary. In the third year, a dual-degree student completes the requirements for the M.Div., while concurrently taking coursework and field education placement in the School of Social Work. In the fourth and final year of the program, students take all their coursework and field education placements at the School of Social Work.
