Dual Degrees

Innovative program options are available for students interested in furthering their holistic health, religious, or legal knowledge while also obtaining an MSW degree. These collaborative programs with the School of Social Work offer dual degrees with: 

  • Holistic Health Studies
  • Theology
  • School of Law 

 
These programs were developed to reinforce and support a professional perspective that serves the multiple and complex needs of clients. To participate in a dual degree option, students must be independently accepted into both graduate programs.  Applicants should express their intent to complete the dual-degree program when applying for admission. Once accepted, you will develop a plan for completing both degrees with the support of an adviser from each program. For social work students, their adviser will be the MSW Program Director or designated faculty member. Upon completion, students will have two degrees.
 
*Please note: The dual degree program offers two separate degrees from two separate programs.  The institutions may articulate transfer/elective credits that students can count toward both degrees.  Each institution is responsible separately for the administration of the program and has its own policies and procedures regarding admission, registration, billing, student advising and graduation requirements.
