Joint Degrees

The Garland School of Social Work has partnered with Truett Theological Seminary and Hankamer School of Business to offer three joint degree opportunities for graduate students.

Master of Divinity (M.Div.)/Master of Social Work (MSW)

The M.Div/MSW joint degree can help students interested in pursuing a career in congregations, religiously affiliated organizations, and faith communitites. In many of these settings, the M.Div degree strengthens students' preparation for church leadership. Often an M.Div is a requirement to hold leadership positions.
