The Master of Divinity/Master of Social Work (M.Div./M.S.W.) prepares students to provide leadership and service through congregations, religiously affiliated organizations, and faith communities. Church agencies, as well as family and children’s agencies, gerontology programs, counseling centers, and community ministries in urban areas and international missions, need professional social workers. In addition, congregations often need the consultation and leadership in family and community ministry which social workers can provide. Many congregational leadership positions and often the chief executive officers of church-related agencies require an M.Div. or other graduate seminary degree as a qualification. This dual degree program, therefore, addresses this need for dual competency.
For admission to the dual degree program, candidates must apply and be accepted by both Truett Seminary’s Master of Divinity program and the School of Social Work’s Master of Social Work program.
Prospective students will declare their intent to enroll in the joint degree with both George W. Truett Theological Seminary and the Baylor University School of Social Work. Students will be required to make formal application to each academic unit.
