Dual Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies and Master of Social Work
Aquinas Institute of Theology and the School of Social Work at Saint Louis University offer a dual degree program comprised of a Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies and a Master of Social Work, which allows students to complete both degrees in 80 credits instead of the 105 credits required to complete both degrees independently.
Through a dual track of coursework and fieldwork, the program is designed to prepare students for professional pastoral ministry and social work. The program provides the framework, skills, and resources necessary for spiritually oriented social work practice and deepens a professional's commitment to social justice.
Applicants must fulfill all admission requirements for both schools, and acceptance into both programs is required for admission into the dual degree program.
