Dual Masters Degrees in Theological Studies/Divinity and Social Work

Northeastern Seminary offers a dual-degree program with the Master of Social Work (MSW) program at Roberts Wesleyan College. Qualified students may complete a M.Div. or M.A. degree and the MSW degree in a time-shortened manner. This is an exceptional program for individuals seeking credentialing in social work and application in a church or faith-based setting.

Program Specifics

Dual-degree students will be expected to complete all of the credit requirements for the MSW degree plus an additional 66 required credits for the M.Div. program or an additional 41 required credits for the M.A. programs. Persons interested in a dual-degree program must apply to each program individually. Full-time students will attend Northeastern for two and a half years for M.A. or three and a half years for M.Div., and then Roberts for approximately two years for MSW depending on admissions status and baccalaureate degree. For students with a qualified Bachelors of Social Work degree an advanced standing option is available which has the potential of shortening the time to completion.

  • Complete the application process
