When prospective and currently enrolled students are enrolled in either the MSW/Public Administration, MSW/MHSA, or the MSW/Gerontology Dual Degree Program, the University will assume that Social Work is the primary academic goal initially, unless advised otherwise, due to the cohort design and the significant commitment necessary to complete practicum requirements.  In the initial stages of a dual degree program, prospective and currently enrolled students should compete for opportunities as outlined for MSW students.  By the month of February in your final year of MSW studies, dual degree program students should apply for merit scholarships by utilizing the Masters Program Scholarship Application to support their Public Administration, Health Services Administration, or Gerontology studies as described in the opening paragraph of this webpage.
