To be considered for the dual MSSP/ML degree, candidates may apply to both programs simultaneously or they may apply to one program after admission to and matriculation in the other program (MSSP or ML). Students pursuing the dual degree must adhere to the independent admission processes and policies of both programs.
Tuition and Financial Aid
Students enrolled in the MSSP/ML dual degree will be primary at the school where they begin, either the School of Social Policy & Practice (SP2) or Penn Carey Law, until they complete their primary program at which time they would become primary in their remaining program. If a student applies to and enrolls in both programs simultaneously, the student will be MSSP primary and tuition will be paid to SP2. Financial aid decisions are made independently by each school.
The MSSP internship provides an opportunity for students to expand horizons beyond the academic. It serves as an opportunity to integrate the classroom learning and apply research skills, via experiences in policy analysis, policymaking, and/or policy implementation, policy evaluation activities, and/or other policy-related activities. It allows students to gain “real” world experience while providing important networking opportunities.
