Mandel School and Bioethics Team Up for New Dual-Degree Program

Picture of buildings on campus Responding to an increasingly complex world where situations may exist that require the help of a social worker and bioethicist, Case Western Reserve University's Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences has teamed up with the Department of Bioethics in the School of Medicine to offer graduate students a unique "side-by-side" dual-degree program toward a Master of Social Science Administration (M.S.S.A.) and Master of Arts in Bioethics (M.A.)

"A growing need exists for advanced practice social workers who are knowledgeable about the principles and problem resolution techniques that are fundamental to bioethics," said Sarah Andrews, assistant dean for academic affairs at the Mandel School.

Students interested in pursuing this new degree program must apply separately to both programs. A joint committee from both schools will review applications to determine who will be accepted for the new program. Read more.
