    Human-Animal-Environment Interactions Course Work Information
    MSW@Denver Students Interested in the Human-Animal-Environment Interactions in Social Work (HAEI-SW) Certificate Course Work:

    MSW@Denver online students may apply to take Human-Animal-Environment Interactions in Social Work (HAEI-SW) courses in the Denver Campus MSW program through the Visiting Student option. If you are interested in this option, please read the below process and disclaimers in full:

    • The HAEI-SW courses are meant to be taken sequentially. SOWK 4795 (3 credits) is the first course, SOWK 4796 (3 credits) is second, and SOWK 4797 (3 credits) is the final course in the sequence.Only the first course (SOWK 4795) is available as a standalone course offering.
    • If approved, the HAEI-SW courses are counted as electives in your program.
      • Traditional students have six total credits of elective requirements. If a Traditional student is interested in taking all three courses, please note this would exceed the total credit requirements for your program.
      • Advanced Standing students have nine total credits of elective requirements.
    • HAEI-SW online courses will be held through the online learning management system, Canvas, as opposed to 2DU.
    • Though the goal is to provide some sections of these courses online through Canvas, we cannot guarantee courses will be offered each term and/or fully online throughout the academic year, as these are Denver campus-based courses. Therefore, some students may not have access to the courses.
      • Term-to-term drafted course schedules can be found at the GSSW Student Resource Portal - Registration Toolkit for planning purposes. You may also reference the online schedule through PioneerWeb. 
        • On the online schedule, under the course title: “Lecture” signifies an on-campus course and “Online/Distance” signifies an online course.
      • Students must apply for the courses through the Visiting Student application. If approved, Visiting Students can take up to 10 credit hours outside of their ‘home’ program. Students must submit their request through an online form at least 6 weeks before the start of the quarter.
        • Application here
        • Please be aware of the listed application due dates
        • Approval is not guaranteed and courses are subject to availability
      • The Summer term for Denver campus does not follow the typical 10 week structure that the MSW@Denver program follows. Students can find the GSSW academic calendars here.
      • At this time, the HAEI-SW MSW Certificate of Specialization is specific to the Denver campus program. As such, the HAEI-SW Certificate cannot be listed on your transcript even if you complete the three, sequential courses. The courses will be listed as courses completed on your transcript. If you would like to document your completion of the HAEI-SW requirements, you may request a letter of completion from the HAEI-SW Certificate Coordinator, Nina Ekholm Fry (Nina.Ekholm-Fry@du.edu)

    Interested in a GSSW Denver campus course? All students have the option of applying through the Visiting Student process, outlined below:

    If approved, Visiting Students can take up to 10 credit hours outside of their ‘home’ program. If a student is interested in taking a class in a different program, they must submit their request for approval through an online survey 6 weeks before the start of the quarter. Approval is not guaranteed and courses are subject to availability. Additionally, all policies are subject to change based on COVID-19 required proceedures. If approved for an on-campus course, all students are expected to follow all required COVID-19 protocols established by the University of Denver.
