The Combined Degree Program (CDP): STG, Law, Juris Doctor / Master of Social Work combines the Faculty of Law's interdisciplinary teaching environment with its commitment to public interest law. The program is designed for students who wish to practise in the areas in which law and social work interact (for example, child welfare, mental health, social policy, human rights).
The CDP permits completion of both the Juris Doctor (JD) and Master of Social Work (MSW) degrees in four years rather than the five years it would take to acquire them independently.
Students who enter with a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) will be given advanced standing and are exempted from completing Year 1 of the MSW. Therefore, they will complete Years 1, 3, and 4 of the CDP only, completing the CDP in three years.
For a general description of CDPs, see General Regulations section 1.4.3.
