Minot State University's Social Work department and North Dakota State University's Human Development and Family Science (HDFS) department offer a collaborative degree program. Students earn an HDFS degree from NDSU (Family Science option) and a BSW in Social Work from Minot State University at the same time. Students must be accepted into NDSU and enrolled in the HDFS program in order to take MSU Social Work courses at NDSU. The total credit requirement of the dual degree program is 127 and almost all Social Work courses are delivered on the NDSU campus in a face to face format. The program is not offered in an online format but a few select courses may be taken online.
