Dual Degrees

In an effort to offer as many opportunities as possible, Rutgers School of Social Work offers graduate dual degrees. Please note that students must apply to the MSW on-campus program to take part in the options below.

Juris Doctor/Master of Social Work (JD/MSW)

The School of Social Work, in collaboration with Rutgers School of Law-Camden and School of Law-Newark, has established an accelerated dual degree program in law and social work through which a student can obtain the J.D. and the MSW degrees. With the accelerated program, a full-time student can expect to complete the degrees in four years rather than the five years normally needed to complete both degrees separately. For more information, click here.

Master of Social Work/Master of Divinity (MSW/M.Div.)

Rutgers School of Social Work and the Princeton Theological Seminary offer an accelerated program in social work and ministry leading to a Master of Social Work (MSW) and Master of Divinity (M. Div.). The program is designed for students who expect to enter forms of ministry requiring competence in the disciplines of theology and social work.

Combined MSW/Ph.D. Program

The School of Social Work offers a combined MSW/Ph.D. program. You may apply to the program with your application to the MSW program, or you may apply in your first year as a matriculated student in the Rutgers MSW Program. For more information, click here.
