Abuse of drugs and alcohol is a problem impacting families across Kentucky. Counseling and treatment are critical factors in helping people overcome abuse and addiction. MSU offers coursework that prepares students for careers to help combat substance abuse across the state.
MSU offers a master's degree program in sociology with a chemical dependency certification concentration. Courses in the program are approved by the Kentucky Alcohol and Drug Certification Board and will prepare students to achieve certification and serve as alcohol and drug counselors.
Students may pursue an undergraduate minor in chemical dependency counseling. The minor consists of five courses (including a practicum) and students may select two additional electives in areas such as health, nursing, psychology, sociology and social work.
A minor in Chemical Dependency Counseling complements degrees in social work, nursing, sociology, criminology and psychology. Any MSU student may choose to pursue this minor.
