Social Work Dual Degree

Are you interested in sociology or psychology and want a program that sets you apart as a future social worker? Consider pursuing the social work bachelor’s to master’s degree program at Hiram College and Case Western Reserve University.

The social work program at Hiram isn’t a traditional major. Rather, it’s a 3+2-year program that partners with Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland to allow you to get your bachelor’s and master’s degrees in five years instead of six. The program prepares you not only for social work testing requirements, but also for a diverse range of careers.

Program Summary

The MSW degree fulfills many of the requirements of social work licensure in all 50 states. To become licensed in any state, you must also complete the licensure exam and complete supervised hours (post-master’s). For an explanation of the various licensing requirements for social workers, visit the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB).

Students must work closely with Hiram College’s social work faculty liaison in order to ensure all requirements are met. Her information is listed at the bottom of this page. We recommend students interested in the 3+2 social work program meet with Case’s Mandel School Admission Office during their sophomore year. The Hiram College liaison can help set up that appointment.
