The MPH/MSW degree program is coordinated between the UAB School of Public Health, Department of Health Care Organization & Policy and the University of Alabama (UA) School of Social Work (in Tuscaloosa). The coordinated program prepares social workers for interdisciplinary practice in public health programs concerned with the promotion and improvement of the health of diverse populations, including women, children, and families. Students will attend classes in Tuscaloosa and Birmingham. This coordinated program is one of the programs in the Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Concentration and is funded, in part, by a federal MCH training grant - The MCH Policy & Leadership Program. This degree is also offered online.
Full-time students generally complete this degree in 2 years, including 2 summers. Part-time students may take up to 5 years. Click here or below for Curriculum Planning Sheet.
Students interested in pursuing the coordinated MPH/MSW degree must apply separately to and be accepted by BOTH the UA School of Social Work for the MSW and the UAB School of Public Health, Department of Health Care Organization & Policy, for the MPH. Acceptance into one school's program does not automatically ensure acceptance into the other school's program.
