Through a new partnership between the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Clinton School students pursuing a Master of Public Service (MPS) degree can receive concurrent degree credit at UA Little Rock.
The concurrent credit will be counted toward a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree at the UA Little Rock School of Social Work.
In this concurrent degree program, students can receive cross-credit for specific courses. Students in the concurrent MPS-MSW program must complete all MSW requirements and all MPS degree requirements for both institutions.
“I’m thrilled about the partnership with the School of Social Work,” Clinton School Academic Dean Susan Hoffpauir, who was once a faculty member in the School of Social Work, said in a statement. “It’s such a perfect fit for students in both programs, and many have already reached out for more information.”
In addition to the School of Social Work concurrent program, the MPS degree can be earned concurrently with a juris doctorate degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Fay. W. Boozman College of Public Health and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Arkansas Sam. M. Walton College of Business.
