Looking for other degrees in Social Work?

Social work and legal issues intersect in the private and public domains. In conjunction with the Western New England University School of Law, the Springfield College School of Social Work and Behavioral Sciences has developed a dual master of social work/juris doctor (MSW/JD) degree program that provides students with the opportunity to complete both degrees within four, rather than five years if the degrees were pursued separately. This program requires full-time study.

Equipped with social work and legal skills, graduates are prepared to meet the multiple challenges found in many areas of practice such as child welfare, education, mental health, family mediation, criminal and juvenile justice, advocacy, and human rights.

Those interested in this program must apply to each program separately. You may contact the Springfield College School of Social Work and Behavioral Sciences at (413) 748-3060 or the WNE School of Law on the web.
