This pathway is specific only to the MSW program at the UM-Ann Arbor. Courses may not be eligible for transfer to any other graduate Social Work program.
Double Counting Credits
The 4+1 Masters program allows current UM-Dearborn undergraduate students to complete both their BS in HHS and MSW degrees in an accelerated format. 4+1 students can double-count up to 12 credits of 500-level or above courses. Double-counting these 12 credits between the BS and MSW programs saves students a total of 4 classes. In addition, in accordance with the campus Course Level Assessment Policy, undergraduate students are charged undergraduate tuition rates for graduate level courses. As a result, the cost of completing the Masters degree is reduced by more than $12,000, assuming part-time enrollment at resident tuition rates.
