About

MPH/MSW Program with the University of Maryland School of Social Work

The Bloomberg School and the University of Maryland School of Social Work offer the Master of Public Health and Master of Social Work (MPH/MSW) dual degree program.

Students gain a population-based perspective and expertise in the quantitative sciences that, when combined with training in social work, prepare them to be effective members of the social work community with the ability to plan, implement and evaluate service programs.

Students complete both the MSW and MPH programs with fewer courses than if they had enrolled in each program separately.

Year 1: MSW coursework, University of Maryland School of Social Work
Year 2: MPH coursework in the 11-month, full-time format
Year 3: MSW coursework, University of Maryland School of Social Work
