Program Information

School:Vancouver Island University
Faculty:Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
Degree:Certificate
Field of Study:Substance Abuse/Addiction Counselling
Description:This certificate gives students the opportunity to take a collection of courses (by their own design) that specialize in the area of addictions. Students must satisfy the Degree English Requirement, and complete 6 credits of required courses in psychology and one required second year methods course. A senior course in theories of addiction is also required but offered across a number of departments. These courses were selected/created to give students an appreciation for research, a strong background in pharmacology and addiction. The remaining courses can be chosen from a variety of disciplines that deal either directly or indirectly addictions.

This credential is considered embedded as it has been designed to be to be taken as part of a degree or diploma in an area of the student's primary interest. For example, students interested in criminology could benefit from a working understanding of addictions if they were going into policing, probation or juvenile services.
