The 1952 curriculum policy, which replaced the curriculum policy adopted in 1932 by the American Association of Schools of Social Work (AASSW), required the curriculum to be constructed in such a way as to permit an integrated course of study with a balance of subject matter and progression in learning for all students (CSWE, 1952).
In 1910, the New York School started a two-year program and in 1932 the American Association of Schools of Social Work (AASSW) published a list of curriculum requirements for a two-year graduate education program (Austin, 1986).
