The Master of Social Work – Public Health joint degree program at the University of Texas at Arlington was developed to respond to the need for a greater integration of the knowledge and skills shared by social work and public health professionals. The MSW/MPH program will prepare students to integrate social work and public health knowledge and skills in their professional lives as practitioners and researchers.
The curriculum shown below is a general plan for the MSW/MPH. By taking a specified number of approved courses in both programs, it is possible for students to complete both degrees in three years (two years for Advanced Standing students), while customizing the program to meet their interests and educational goals. Flexibility in the program allows most students to combine the MPH and MSSW requirements of a practicum with other learning experiences from the MSW program. Students are guided by a Student Advisory Committee comprised of faculty from both participating school programs.
”UTA’s program turned out to be the perfect match in terms of curriculum, internships, and the assistance that is provided to students to establish a wide network of professional contacts.”
