Kinesiology and Social Work Dual Degree (M.S./M.S.W.)
Social Work and Kinesiology
Dual-degree Social Work and Kinesiology students take classes simultaneously over the course of two-and-and-half years in both Social Work and Kinesiology: Outdoor Education and complete a minimum of 77 credits for graduation. This includes two internships, one during their first year of study, and a second specialized block placement internship over the summer following the second year of study, which concentrates on the utilization and application of adventure therapy in an agency setting. This block placement internship may occur in New England or in other appropriate settings across the U.S. Students are required to also complete either a master thesis or an advanced studies project during their last year of study, which is supervised by faculty in Kinesiology: Outdoor Education.
Dual degree applicants in Social Work and Kinesiology: Outdoor Education must meet the requirements for both Social Work and Kinesiology: Outdoor Education. Please note, dual degree applicants must submit two different applications, one for the M.S.W. program and one for the M. S. in Kinesiology. Applicants should check each program for their requirements which may be different. GREs are required.
Dual degree applications are due by February 1st.
