The master of social work (MSW) and master of public health (MPH) dual degree is a collaboration between the University of Denver and the Colorado School of Public Health at the Anschutz Medical Campus. The fields of public health and social work share a lot in common. Both strive to improve health and social functioning, with public health focusing primarily on physical health and social work focusing primarily on social, emotional and mental health. What can you do with an MSW/MPH dual degree? Medical and public health services, substance abuse prevention and treatment, mental health and child welfare are just a few of the options.
