Extended One-Year Residence
For employed social workers, the Extended One-Year Residence combines 37 credits of part-time study (fewer than 10 credits per semester) with two semesters of full-time study (minimum of 10 credits per semester), including one Field placement of 900 hours. Clinically supervised direct social work employment is required for entry into this pathway. Applicants must have provided two years of direct services to clients. An employment-based Field learning option is available to students employed in agencies that provide an appropriate educational experience as determined by the Office of Field Learning & Community Partnerships. The period of study ranges from three to four years.
This pathway is available at our Washington Square, Rockland County, and Westchester County campuses.
