Juris Doctor and Master of Social Work

The School of Law and the College for Public Health and Social Justice offer a J.D./M.S.W. Students complete their first year core curriculum courses in the School of Law. Thereafter, students begin an integrated curriculum at both the School of Law and School of Social Work. Full-time students can complete the J.D./M.S.W. program in four years. Of the 91 hours required for the J.D., nine hours are satisfied by Social Work courses. To request law school course credit for these nine hours, students must complete the Request to Take Course Outside the School of Law form. Additional information on the J.D./M.S.W. program is available on the College for Public Health and Social Justice website.
