Developing in-depth knowledge of social and legal systems. Improving understanding of organizational and human behavior. Implementing changes to improve the lives of individuals and communities. It's how our graduates lead the charge to improve social policy and law. Through our dual degree program, students earn a Juris Doctor (JD) degree from the SUNY Buffalo Law School and a Master of Social Work (MSW) from the UB School of Social Work. The collaborative program reduces the total time and credits compared to completing each degree separately.
Interventions II builds students' generalist practice skills developed in Interventions I and shifts the emphasis to target systems at the mezzo and macro levels of practice. A goal of Interventions II is to further anchor the students’ professional social work development in evidence-based, trauma-informed and human rights perspective practice.
