What to Expect
You can complete our MA/MSW dual degree in as few as 16 months, though we offer flexible learning options to meet your busy lifestyle.
Our “side-by-side” MA/MSW program offers you the chance to study both areas simultaneously, with the curriculum of each program designed to enhance the other. You’ll complete 61 credit hours in social work and 31 in bioethics—though 16 credit hours “count double”—meaning you’ll pay less and complete your degrees faster as part of a dual-degree program than if done separately.
Cross-disciplinary courses include Intercultural Issues in Bioethics and Social Work, electives and a culminating one-credit capstone that integrates the entire program’s learnings.
