Juris Doctor and Masters of Social Work Program

The School of Social Work offers two tracks for the M.S.W. degree. Track One is a two year track requiring 60 hours of credit. Track One is generally undertaken by those students whose undergraduate degree is in a field other than social work. Track Two consists of a 39 hour credit requirement and is capable of being completed in one summer and one academic year. Track Two is available to selected students who have an undergraduate degree in social work from an accredited social work program.

The concurrent program would combine requirements to enable students to receive the two degrees simultaneously with a minimum requirement of 81 hours in law and 51 hours in social work (in the 60 hour track) or 33 hours of social work (in the 39 hour track).
