  • At the conclusion of the first Human Behavior I class (SOWK 640) you will be asked to write a brief (20 – 30 minute) response to a question. This will be screened by us to see if more assistance with writing is needed. We will inform you if it is. Students who are not taking SOWK 640 this spring will complete the writing sample in the fall when taking SOWK 640.
