About

Public health and social work professionals have complementary interests in understanding and improving the health and well-being of individuals and populations.

Overview

Interested students may study for a Master of Public Health from UTHealth School of Public Health in Austin and a Master’s of Science in Social Work at The University of Texas at Austin School of Social Work. Students are expected to integrate the knowledge and learning experiences through shared credit courses as well as practicum and culminating (thesis) experiences. 

Students will work with an advisory committee that includes faculty from both institutions. This program offers students an opportunity to integrate their studies in social work and public health while minimizing duplication in course content and reducing the time and costs that are associated with pursuing each degree independently. 

The integrated program is designed as a three-year course of study.
