DUAL DEGREE PROGRAM:
There is also one dual degree program: the Dual Degree Program in Social Work and Public Health Administration, a program conducted jointly with the College of Social Work, which leads to an MSW-MPH degree.
The University requires that graduate level students maintain academic standards as outlined in the USC Graduate School Bulletin. A graduate student's average on all courses attempted must be at least a B (3.0 on a 4 point system). Students with an accumulation of grades of C+or below on graduate course work are suspended from degree candidacy, pending review by the Department and the Graduate School.
