Does the Psychology Program Offer Any Degree Specializations?

Four courses on Substance Abuse Counseling are offered at WCSU to meet the academic requirements for Certification of Substance AbuseCounselors (CADC) as defined by the Connecticut Certification Board Connecticut Certification Board .The certification board of New York provides reciprocal certification for Connecticut CADCs.
Prerequisites for these courses are Introductory Psychology and Abnormal Psychology.
The Connecticut Certification Board  has recommended additional professional education for CADCs at the graduate level. As of October 1, 1998, Connecticut has licensed substance abuse counselors who meet requirements for the CADC certification and have Masters degrees in an area of human services. It is expected that substantial numbers of students who complete this sequence of courses in substance abuse counseling will pursue Masters degrees in human services.
