3+2 Program (Senior Year in Professional Studies)
Exceptional undergrads committed to social work and related fields can complete an undergraduate degree and one of our master’s programs in just 5 years.
The Senior Year in Professional Studies social work program enables qualified college seniors majoring in social work-related fields to begin their first year of MSSA graduate study during what would normally be their last year of undergraduate work. If you are an undergraduate social and behavioral science program student with exceptional ability and achievement, you could be admitted to the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at the end of your junior year. Receive your MSSA in less time so that you can begin making a difference in your chosen career at an accelerated pace.
Substitute your first year of studying for your MSSA for the last year of undergraduate work.
In the Senior Year in Professional Studies social work program, your bachelor’s degree will be granted by the undergraduate college when you’ve successfully completed your first year in the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School’s master’s program. Contact us to set up an interview with the director of admissions as part of the application process to our master’s program. In the interview, you and the director will explore your level of:
- knowledge of social work
- readiness for professional education
To qualify for this program, you must demonstrate superior academic ability and achievement during your first three years of undergraduate study. You must also apply to the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School before the second semester of your junior year. Find out how you can be accepted to one of the top ten graduate schools of social work during your senior year of undergraduate study.
