MSW/MPH: Social Work and Public Health

This collaborative program with the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) enables you to tailor your dual degree, combining one of the Fordham MSW concentrations with one of ISMMS’ eight Master of Public Health (MPH) degree tracks.


You need 99 credits to complete both degrees in three years. If you were to pursue both degree programs separately, you would need to complete 111 credits and it would take four years.
