Available to students in any of the school's departments of study, the MSW/Master of Planning program caters to students who desire careers in societal and community welfare policy, social planning or social services delivery.
In the first year, the focus is on direct service, allowing planning coursework to be supplemented by knowledge of consumers and service delivery. Two years of field practice in social work provide in-depth exposure to social service issues from both planning and direct service perspectives. The dual degree is normally completed over 28 months.
