The 19-21 credit minor in Addiction Studies prepares students for employment in addiction prevention programs and services. Upon completion of the minor, students will have: met the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) education training requirements for initial certification as a Credentialed Prevention Professional (CPP) and Credentialed Prevention Specialist (CPS); and be eligible to sit for the CPP/CPS certification exam. Full certification as a CPP or CPS requires 1 - 2 years of supervised post-graduate work experience before full certification is awarded by OASAS.
The minor in Addiction Studies is open to all Syracuse University students with a GPA of 2.5 or above, including those within the public health major.
