15.2.3 CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT IN THE MSW AND PhD DEGREE PROGRAMS

The University of Alabama School of Social Work offers an MSW/PhD concurrent program for individuals who have strong interests in research careers in social work. These individuals may be admitted simultaneously to the MSW and PhD programs and work on both degrees concurrently. Those admitted to the concurrent program will complete all current requirements for the PhD degree. Specific required PhD coursework will be applied to specific MSW degree requirements, reducing the number of semester hours required for the MSW and PhD degrees by 18 hours. The MSW degree will be awarded when all requirements for the MSW completed, and the student will continue to work on the PhD requirements.
 Successful applicants must meet the minimum admission requirements of the Graduate School and The School of Social Work MSW and PhD Programs.
