MSW Combined Programs

MSW Combined Programs

The Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work participates in two combined programs. Admission to the combined program is conditional upon the applicant meeting each faculty’s admission requirements.

Combined Law and Social Work – J.D./MSW Program

The Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work and the Faculty of Law offer a combined program leading to degrees of Juris Doctor and Master of Social Work. Intended for students who wish to practice in the areas where law and social work intersect (for example, child welfare, juvenile and criminal justice, dispute resolution, mental health and family law). Students complete the two degrees in four years, rather than the five it would take to pursue the two independently. Students who enter with a BSW will be given advanced standing.

Combined Health Administration and Social Work – M.H.SC./MSW Program

With the focus on community health care, there is a greater need for linkages between health and social services. The Interdisciplinary Program of Social Work and Health Administration is a program of study for students who wish to move into administrative leadership in social work and health organizations. The program allows students to complete both degrees in three years, rather than the four it would take to pursue the two independently. Students entering with a B.S.W. will be given advanced standing. Contact the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation for admission information at:
