DMAAAH  Addiction Studies and Youth Work Double Major 

This unit set is available in the following courses:

The addiction studies and youth work double major comprises 360 credit points (24 units).  Young people who come into contact with Youth Workers typically experience co-occurring alcohol, tobacco and/or other drug problems. This double major is therefore designed to connect these two areas and provide students with an understanding of youth issues and drug-use issues. 


Two of the addiction studies units (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.
