School of Social Work
MSW / MPA Admissions
Students must be admitted to both the MSW and MPA programs. Generally, students begin with the MSW application. Students interested in pursuing both degrees should request that the School of Social Work assign them to the faculty advisor for the MSW/MPA program.
The MPA application must also be completed, including transcript, letters of reference, and resume. A cover letter to the School of Public and Nonprofit Administration (SPNA) detailing the request for admission to the MSW/MPA program, the SPNA Basic Application and the specific essay material required by the SPNA program are required for admissions consideration.
Advanced Standing for Social Work Students
Students seeking to complete the MSW/MPA program, and who have been admitted to the Advanced Standing Program in the School of Social Work should provide evidence of having completed at least two years of volunteer or paid work experience in a human service organization, with a significant emphasis on macro-level activities.
