For students who cannot take the course as part of their
undergraduate degree, we recommend taking the course from a local
community college or other accredited institution. If you are
beginning the MSW program in the fall, then the summer before you
start is the ideal time to fulfill this requirement.
Community colleges are typically the least expensive option when
it comes to taking a non-degree course. Make sure before you enroll
that the course title is "Human Biology" or "Anatomy and
Physiology." We only require a 3-credit undergraduate course, so if
there is a lab that students typically take that would make it more
than 3 credits, you do not need to take it. You would only need the
3-credit lecture course.
If you would like to make sure that the course you are planning
on taking will count towards this requirement, feel free to email a
syllabus to email@example.com, and we will be happy to
verify it for you.
