MSW/MPH Admissions

The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Fordham University's Graduate School of Social Service offer a joint Master of Social Work (MSW) and Master of Public Health (MPH) program for students interested in obtaining a dual degree. We provide a highly collaborative program that addresses prevention and solutions to local and global health issues.  

Through the dual degree program, students have the opportunity to combine the Icahn Mount Sinai public health tracks with any of the four concentration programs at Fordham University. 

The Icahn Mount Sinai public health specialty tracks are: 

Fordham University concentration programs are: 

  • Clinical 
  • Leadership and Macro Practice: Human Service 
  • Leadership and Macro Practice: Community-Based Practice 
  • Research 

How to Apply 

If you are interested in applying to the MSW/MPH program, you must complete the standard admissions requirements for a MPH from Icahn Mount Sinai, as well as the requirements from Fordham University, and must be accepted into both programs. 

Applications to the MPH program should be submitted via SOPHAS. A separate application for admission to the Fordham University MSW program must also be submitted. You do not need to make a final decision about a specialty track during the application process.
