Social Work and Child Development
A dual degree in Social Work and Child Development is offered with the New York University School of Social Work. Students in this program can pursue study leading to a master’s degree in Social Work and a master’s degree in Child Development; 95 credits (instead of 113) are required, including a thesis for the MA in Child Development (12 credits). Students begin this program with one year of study and fieldwork at Sarah Lawrence. Then they pursue their social work courses and clinical fieldwork in the second and third years. With faculty guidance, students carefully select courses that are appropriate for transfer credit in both schools. The dual degree program can be completed full-time in three years or on a part-time basis. Dual degree students must be admitted to both schools. The deadline for Sarah Lawrence is February 1.

Sarah Lawrence College, as a member of The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, is accredited by The Middle States Commission on Higher Education, a federally-recognized regional accrediting body.
