Program Info

Students who want to expand their understanding of co-occurring disorders without committing to a master's degree can apply for the Certificate of Graduate Studies (CGS) in Co-Occurring Disorders. With a focus on mental health and substance use, current and aspiring professionals prepare to work with the complexities of co-occurring disorders. The 6 courses (18 graduate credits) are core to the Masters degree in Co-Occurring Disorders. The certificate meets state approval for the course requirements of a Certified Co-occurring Disorder Professional. Courses appear with an asterisk (*) in the Course Requirements section.
