The School of Social Service Administration and the Divinity School of the University of Chicago have designed a program of study that permits students to earn both the A.M. and the M.Div. degrees in one academic year less than if they completed both degree programs consecutively. Course requirements for the A.M. component of the program include core and concentration courses for a total of 13 SSA courses.

Applicants to the joint A.M./M.Div. program must meet the entrance requirements and follow the application procedures of both the School of Social Service Administration and the Divinity School.

Information for current students who wish to consider joining this program may be obtained by contacting the Dean of Students Office of both the School of Social Service Administration and the Divinity School. Applicants should contact the Directors of Admission.

“It’s important to have transferable skills and to have a professional mentor. Working with [Assistant Professor] Alida Bouris has helped me both personally and professionally. She has encouraged me to mold my course schedule and placement to my interest and goals, to take risks, and she has helped me shape my vision of who I am in the social work world.”
