What is a MSW Dual Degree Program?
A dual degree program combines two advanced degrees in related fields. CSU’s School of Social Work and the Colorado School of Public Health support and share your passion for tackling global social and behavioral health issues. By choosing the MSW/MPH dual degree track, you are able to share credits between programs, reducing the time and tuition costs necessary to complete both programs. This is a unique opportunity; there are only 20 like it in the U.S.
Our MSW/MPH Dual Degree Program is paired with a public health concentration of Global Health and Health Disparities. This concentration gives students a foundation and skill set for working with underserved populations and tackling issues of social justice and health equity locally and globally.
You will develop skills in:
- Public policy analysis and development,
- Program planning and evaluation,
- Systems level thinking, and
- Research, practice, and application of theory.
