The University of Michigan based in Ann Arbor, MI offers a fully funded Joint PhD in Social Work and Social Science. Students earn an interdisciplinary degree in Social Work and one of four social science fields. Joint PhD students reflect the populations they serve and address society’s challenging issues through scientifically rigorous social and behavioral research. The Joint Program in Social Work and Social Science provides all incoming doctoral students with a multi-year funding package. They combine fellowship awards, graduate student research assistant positions, and graduate student instructorships to offer most students five years of full funding, which includes tuition, and stipends.
