Substance Abuse Studies Minor

The substance abuse studies minor is designed to meet the needs of those who wish to develop a broad base of knowledge concerning substance abuse problems, resources available for managing these problems, and modes of treatment of the individual substance abuser. This minor is appropriate for students employed in or wishing to enter the field of substance abuse treatment, as well as students who feel that the knowledge base provided in this program will be useful to them in their careers (management, teaching, etc.). Some minor courses are offered only in the evening or online. This minor can be combined with any major and minor except the APS major with a concentration in substance abuse studies and the substance abuse studies certificate. A minimum of 9 credits must be exclusive to the minor and cannot be counted toward any other majors/minors/certificate programs.
