Dual Degrees

Students with special interests or those who wish to better position themselves in the job market may find the opportunity to concurrently earn two degrees especially advantageous. We partner with five other professional schools at USC, in addition to Hebrew Union College, to offer eight options for a concurrent degree. While obtaining your MSW, you can earn a law degree, MBA or master’s in gerontology, Jewish nonprofit management, planning, public administration, public health or PhD direct. Each of our dual-degree options reduces the total number of course hours that would be required if each degree were pursued independently. Students must apply and be admitted to both professional schools. (Applicants to the Virtual Academic Center are not eligible for the dual degree program.) For specific USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work questions, please contact the Office of Admissions. Please visit the application process page for instructions on how to apply to any of our 8 dual degree programs.
