Chemical Dependency Counseling Minor

Program Info
Beginning in the Fall 2012 semester, MSU students have the option to obtain a minor in Chemical Dependency Counseling. This minor would provide additional preparation for those students pursuing a career in the substance abuse field. This minor is open to all students seeking an undergraduate degree. A minor in Chemical Dependency Counseling could compliment a degree in: Social Work, Sociology, Criminology, Psychology, and many others!


This program does not provide a degree, it is a minor that provides additional coursework for anyone striving to work in the substance abuse field.

Social Work

Some may believe that all social workers are employed in the Department of Community Based Services. While this is one viable place of employment for individuals with a social work degree, there are numerous other areas of social work and places for employment. Morehead State University alumni with a bachelors in social work are employed in state, local, and regional social service agencies including: health, hospice and eldercare, rehabilitation, domestic violence shelters, substance abuse treatment as well as many other agencies.

Graduates of our social work program become advocates for those in need of critical human resources and may work to improve:

  • Anti-violence facilities
  • Assistance for the elderly
  • Child welfare and protection
  • Domestic violence intervention
  • Family planning and preservation
  • Income maintenance
  • Medical and mental health services
  • Services for the homeless
  • Substance abuse prevention
