The School of Social Work and the Graduate School of Public health offer a three-year concurrent graduate program leading to a Master of Social Work and a Master of Public Health. The objective of the concurrent program is to offer preparation in the fields of public health and social work. Students in this concurrent program must select the social work administration methods focus area.

A four-semester field practicum is required and begins in Year Two. Students are also required to complete a thesis. The thesis incorporating theory, method, and analytic techniques from both disciplines is the culminating experience for the concurrent program leading to the MSW and MPH degrees.

A detailed description may be found in the Social Work section of the SDSU Graduate Bulletin. Included are admission requirements, detailed program requirements, and course and electives listings.
