A dual Master of Divinity/Master of Social Work (MDiv/MSW) allows students to combine training and experience in social work with theological studies and formation for ministry. The MSW, offered through the University of Georgia, offers an enhanced awareness and engagement of public resources for community development and empowerment; skills for advocacy and social policy analysis; program design, methods, and administration of community-based agencies and programs; organizational analysis; and knowledge and experience of clinical practices in fields such as gerontology, and individual and family therapy. This program allows the MDiv/MSW degrees to be earned in four years, one year shorter than if the theology and social work degrees were pursued separately. A student applies to each school separately as the schools maintain independent application procedures. Once admitted to both schools, students apply for the dual degree program and are assigned advisers at each school. Typically the first year is spent at Candler, the second and third years at UGA’s School of Social Work, and the fourth year at Candler. The student must register and pay for four semesters at Candler and four semesters at UGA. Candler scholarships are applicable only to those semesters in which students are in residency at the School of Theology.
