As the traditional path to the MSW degree, the Two-Year option attracts the greatest number of students. The period of study is four semesters: fall-spring-fall-spring, including 1,200 hours of Field. Study during the summer is not required. Students spend two semesters in each of two different agencies, which are selected from among the more than 600 social service agencies throughout the metropolitan area that are affiliated with the School.
This pathway is available at our Washington Square, Rockland County, and Westchester County campuses.
