The Department of Addictions and Rehabilitation Studies offers a bachelor of science in rehabilitation services and an alcohol and drug studies minor.
The Rehabilitation Services, BS prepares entry-level human service personnel for careers in substance abuse, mental health, vocational rehabilitation, and other allied health professions. Working successfully with individuals who have life challenges, including physical and/or mental disabilities, as well as substance use disorders, requires good communication skills, a strong interest in helping others, flexibility, creativity, a willingness to participate as a treatment team member, and strong leadership skills.
The Alcohol and Drug Studies Minor is available to undergraduate students from any major. The acquisition of this minor provides real advantages to a student’s marketability in basic substance abuse jobs throughout the state.
