Addictions and Mental Health, Bachelor of Social Science

Bachelor Degree

Humber’s Bachelor of Social Science - Addictions and Mental Health program provides you with degree level education, knowledge and skills required to work in this field. From a biopsychosocial perspective, our program focuses on the impact of social, historical, economic and political forces on addictions and mental health and examines the opportunities for prevention, harm reduction and recovery. Students are encouraged to critically analyze systemic issues, develop and apply skills in counselling, case management, community development and grant writing.
Courses in the first year are part of the common platform with other degrees at Humber offered in the field of social science. In the second year of study, students immerse themselves in the field of addictions and mental health in courses that include equity and inclusion, assessment, and counselling. This solid foundation of theory and application is followed by two years of further in-depth study in ethics, advanced counselling, contemporary issues, inter-professional collaboration and research. Overall, the program emphasizes critical thinking, analytical skills, leadership/management and professional practice.
