Psychology Partnership Programs


The psychology department of Dominican University has partnerships with other programs that offer opportunities to enter health-related professions.

Social Work


Bridge Program


Psychology majors may take two classes in the Graduate School of Social Work at Dominican University during their senior year (SWK 513 and SWK 514). These courses count toward the psychology major and may be applied to the master’s degree in social work (MSW). Students desiring a career in social work and who wish to attend the Dominican University Graduate School of Social Work should apply for admission during their senior year of study. Successful completion of these courses does not guarantee admission to this graduate program.

5-Year BA/MSW


Psychology majors have the option of pursuing a track that leads to completion of a Master of Social Work degree in approximately one year after obtaining their Bachelor of Arts degree. Acceptance into the Graduate School of Social Work is contingent upon completion of all undergraduate requirements in the major, and an overall grade point average of 3.25. Students who are interested in the 5-year BA/MSW should meet with the chair of the psychology department soon after they declare their major and before they achieve junior standing.
