The MSW/MPP dual-degree program, offered in collaboration with the School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland, College Park, prepares graduates for practice in public policy and social service agencies and settings in which a combined expertise in social work and public policy would enable them to assume policy and leadership positions.

The dual degree program requires 90 credits. This consists of 51 credits in the School of Social Work and 39 credits in the Schoolof Public Policy. Combining the strengths of the University of Maryland School of Social Work’s MSW program and the University of Maryland, College Park’s MPP program, students will be immersed in two diverse curricula and faculties. Both programs accept nine(9) credits from the other program, which allows students to complete both the MSW and MPP programs with fewer courses and in less time than if they had to enroll in each program separately. Full-time students complete the dual degree in three (3) years, plussummers. Students may complete their first year in either program, their second year in the alternate program, and then split their third year between the two programs.
