About

The Health Services Policy and Management and Social Work MPH/MSW program offered at University of South Carolina provides students with the competencies needed to manage public health programs and to direct population-based health improvement.

Overview

Health care is one of the largest industries in the country and accounts for about one-fifth of the U.S. economy. We focus on training the managers, researchers and educators who enhance population health through better management of public and private health care organizations. The Health Services Policy and Management and Social Work MPH/MSW program is offered at University of South Carolina.

What you will study

In addition to the public health core competencies, the 45-hour MPH curriculum provides training in health services policy, public health finance, public health law, and program planning and evaluation. The requirements for the MPH portion of the degree are the same as for the standalone degree program though some courses do fulfill requirements for both degree programs, resulting in fewer semester hours to complete both degrees than if pursued separately. Those seeking the combination MSW/MPH degree must be accepted for graduate study in both the College of Social Work and the Arnold School of Public Health.

  • Social Work Practice with Individuals, Families and Small Groups 
  • Social Work Practice with Organizations and Communities
