What does the second year of the Two-Year Program consist of?

Our full-time Two-Year program, consisting of two years of consecutive fall and spring semesters, is the path most frequently chosen. As a student in the Two-Year program, you spend two days a week in the classroom and three days a week in the field. In the second year, you select a concentration area and field of practice for more specialized training and field work. A wide range of elective courses makes it possible for you to develop additional expertise in areas such as family or group interventions; treatment of children, adolescents and young adults; responding to trauma; working with veterans and their families; or managing a nonprofit agency. By the time you graduate, you are prepared for entry into advanced social work practice in the area of your choice.
