Master of Social Work
Admission Requirements: The
applicant must score well on the LSAT or GRE; is encouraged to submit a personal
statement; have an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or better; submit three letters of
recommendation and be matriculated in the J.D. program at Albany Law School.
The dual J.D./M.S.W.
degree program is designed to promote integration between the fields of law and
social work. It enables students to earn both degrees in, at most, four years of
full-time study, rather than the usual five. The program is designed so that a
maximum of six courses may be applicable to both degrees. Recipients of joint
J.D./M.S.W. degrees hold professional credentials for a broad range of careers
in government, consulting, teaching, research and law.
