The Master of Social Work - Public Health degree from University of Alaska Anchorage provides academic training in order to maximize the impact of both public health and social work practices. 


This dual degree develops expertise at the nexus of public health and social work. The goal of this Social Work - Public Health program at University of Alaska Anchorage is to train leaders who have the skills and competencies to address many of the social and public health problems facing the state of Alaska, this nation and the world.
