Title of Resolution
This non-clinical track would provide an option for Alcohol & Substance Abuse Studies majors in their final year, allowing them to substitute 15 credits of other designated coursework for the 15 credits of HCS 498 Internship (12 cr) and HCS 497 Internship Seminar (3 cr). This track would provide an option for majors who: 1) have discovered that they do not want to do clinical substance abuse treatment counseling; 2) with a second major, such as social work or criminal justice, wish to focus their final semester on their other major; 3) are unable to maintain the overall GPA of 2.5 required for clinical majors; or 4) are already working in the field. The non-clinical track would require grades of C or better in all classes with no GPA minimum. Program requirements include – All required ASAP courses, HCS 404, HCS 439, & HCS 440 which are currently offered as electives; an elective by advisement; and HCS 499 Independent Study, a Capstone Course developed by advisement. We will accept capstone courses in other majors if applicable.
