Fordham London Summer Study 2014

GSS is very pleased to offer our master of social work students the opportunity to take an elective taught by Fordham University faculty at Heythrop College in London again this summer.  Heythrop is a Jesuit college near the center of London, in South Kensington.  Many of last year's students thought it was "one of the best experiences of their lives."


Students will take one course, which will count as an advanced elective.  The program also includes field trips to London agencies and clinics.


The courses will run for three weeks from June 10 to June 27, 2014.  They will most likely meet for 3.5 hours, three days a week.


Students must have completed the Foundation Phase of the M.S.W. program.


The cost for the class is the same as our regular tuition, plus airfare and housing.  There are dorms on the campus that are available for about $400 per week.


Registration begins in mid-December 2013.  For more information and application see our Course Descriptions.  Register on for your first choice.  We will need a $200 deposit to guarantee your room if you plan to stay in the dorm.  (This is non-refundable after March 1, 2014.)
