Dual Degree: MSW/MPH

Master of Social Work/Master of Public Health (MSW/MPH)

Together, Rutgers School of Social Work and Rutgers School of Public Health have created the MSW/MPH dual degree program that draws upon core principles of both fields: to understand and improve human and societal well-being. Students will learn to work across systems to reach individuals, groups, communities, and populations through evidence-based practice and multi-level interventions. Through coursework topics in human behavior and the social environment, urban planning, clinical social work, epidemiology, and biostatistics, students will be equipped to work in a variety of settings including government agencies, nonprofits, or private healthcare organizations that seek to advance public and social/mental health. Learn more about the MSW/MPH program and view the currciulum at a glance
