MSW/Master of Divinity

Students in this program earn a Master of Social Work degree from the Brown School and a Master of Divinity from Eden Theological Seminary. The program of study requires 114 credit hours, typically taken over four years.

The goal of the program is to prepare students with the combined skills and values in both social work and leadership ministry. The areas for which the dual degree knowledge is most appropriate are leadership in and development of religious-based or sponsored social services, therapeutic and counseling services in religious settings, concern about development of life cycle and family issues in the context of a faith community, and seeking practice and policy implications of a call for justice.
