Fordham School of Social Work

This collaborative program between the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and  Fordham University's Graduate School of Social Service enables students to earn both a Master of Social Work and a Master of Public Health degree.  Students can take courses simultaneously toward the Master of Social Work at Fordham University’s Graduate School of Social Service and the Master of Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.   


Students need 96 credits to complete both degrees.  If they were to pursue both degree programs separately, 108 credits would be required.  As students are enrolled and taking courses in each program at the same time, both degrees can be completed in three years rather than the usual four years.


Students who are interested in applying to the dual MSW/MPH program must complete the admission requirements outlined by each institution.


Any questions about the program should be directed to Elisabeth Brodbeck, Assistant Director, Graduate Program in Public Health at Elisabeth.Brodbeck@mssm.edu or (212) 824-7322.

Any questions about admission to Fordham University’s Graduate School of Social Service should be directed to Dr. Derek Brown, Assistant Dean/Director of Admissions at gssadmission@fordham.edu or (212) 636-6600.
