Students who decide to apply in their final semester following the completion of all MSW program requirements should follow the below Application Timeline for Second-Year MSW Applicants with Advanced Standing Status:

October 1: Deadline to submit all required applications, including faculty reference

Curriculum Timeline for MSP Students with Advanced Standing Status

Most MSP dual-degree students complete their MSP program requirements during their second year at the Brown School. Students who add MSP on at the end of their MSW Advanced Standing program complete 31 credit hours over the spring, summer and fall semester—typically dedicating the summer semester to completing the MSP internship. Students are encouraged to work with their academic advisor and the MSP program staff to identify a program approach that meets your academic and professional goals.
