Our MPH/MSW program incorporates a public health perspective into social work practice and enables students to earn both a Master in Public Health (MPH) and a Master of Social Work (MSW). This collaborative program with the UB School of Public Health and Health Professions reduces the amount of time and credits compared to completing both programs separately.
Three credit hours are required for the first semester and four credit hours for the second semester for students in their advanced year placement in the MSW program. A minimum of 480 clock hours are required to complete Field Instruction III & IV including 240 hours in the first semester and 240 hours in the second semester. Field Instruction III & IV are completed as the Advanced Year Field Placement. Both semesters must be successfully completed consecutively in order to get credit for the Advanced Year Field Placement.
