The dual degree Master of Social Work and Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management is a cooperative arrangement between the School of Social Work and the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs. Master of Social Work students pursuing a concentration in administration, planning and policy practice or clinical practice may simultaneously earn the graduate certificate in nonprofit management offered by the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs. The certificate requires a total of 15 credit hours. The program is designed to bring together two fields that benefit from complementary knowledge and skills that may be used in the government and nonprofit sectors. This integration of education in social work and nonprofit management draws on the contributions that each area can make to a professional knowledge base for practice in both fields.
