MSW/JD Dual Degree
The MSW/JD Dual Degree Program is designed for students who are interested in serving the combined legal and social needs of individuals, families, groups, and communities. Graduates earn both an MSW and a JD in four years, rather than the usual five, and are eligible to take the bar and social work licensing exams. While most students begin the program at the School of Social Work, exceptions may be made for students who apply during their first year of law school.
To enroll, you must be accepted independently by both schools and register as a full-time student throughout the four-year program. For more information, contact:
