Boston College offers three dual-degree programs for Master’s students interested in pursuing a career at the intersection of social work and law, business, or pastoral ministry.
Boston College School of Social Work offers three separate PhD curriculums. The PhD in Social Work is designed to prepare doctoral students with both the training and expertise to be teachers, scholars, and researchers. The MSW/PhD in Social Work program is for students who have a master’s degree but not a master’s degree in social work, the combined MSW/PhD Program curriculum allows work toward both degrees simultaneously to finish in significantly less time than it takes to purse each degree separately. The PhD in Social Welfare program, an International Doctoral Program in Social Welfare, is a collaboration between the Boston College School of Social Work and select Jesuit universities in Latin America. This program aims to cultivate scholars from Latin America who will further the development of Social Welfare in their home countries through research and teaching.
