In collaboration with the School of Social Work, ELPS is delighted to offer a dual degree with two Master of Social Work concentration options to better support those also seeking a MEd in Higher Education.   

MEd/MSW with Mental Health and Substance Abuse Specialty Option 

With increasing concerns for students' mental and physical well-being exacerbated by the global pandemic and economic uncertainty, this dual MEd/MSW degree, will better equip higher education leaders to offer optimal support to their students as well as their colleagues.  

MEd/MSW with Community and Administrative Practice Concentration Option 

An MEd with an MSW focused on community and administrative practice will support higher education leaders to better cultivate collaborations, build stronger initiatives that support diverse identities and cultures while also examining organizational structures that hinder student success. "
