Program Overview

The dual-degree program established by the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences and the university’s School of Law makes it possible for selected full-time students to pursue an integrated program of studies to receive the Master of Social Work (MSW) and Juris Doctor (JD) degrees within four years rather than the normal five years. Applicants for the dual-degree program must apply to and meet the admission requirements of both professional schools and are encouraged to apply for admission to both programs simultaneously.  Dual-degree students must receive the MSW and JD degrees simultaneously to be granted credit for specific courses taken in the other program.
