MAAAHU  Addiction Studies Major  

This unit set is available in the following courses:

The addiction studies major comprises 120 credit points (8 units) and is designed to provide students with an understanding of the use of alcohol and other psychoactive drugs and the problems associated with that use.  The most effective methods in minimising drug-related harm are also explored. 


Bachelor of Health Science students complete HST2111 or HST2100 (or another second-year HST unit approved by the Bachelor of Health Science course coordinator) instead of ADS1151.


Two of the units within the addiction studies major (ADS3252 and ADS3351) require students to attend on-campus classes.  Students who are unable to attend classes may, with the permission of the Bachelor of Health Science course coordinator, substitute any two third-year HST units.
