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.
Through this course, you will be able to deepen your understanding of perspectives and approaches that can be taken to understand trauma and uphold human rights. Emphasis is placed on facilitating integrative and complex analyses of concepts and skills introduced in the foundation year. The course content offers a survey of diverse ways of conceptualizing, researching, preventing and redressing trauma and human rights violations.
