Addiction Counseling Certificate Program
This program provides required course work credits toward the Montana Licensed Addiction Counselor credential.
Students must earn 12 credits of addiction-specific course work in order to earn the addiction counseling graduate certificate from MSU. State licensure requirements differ and students will be advised to take additional MSU course work to meet these requirements. The MSU addiction counseling certificate provides individual academic advisement and tailors students' programs of study based on individual student academic backgrounds.
Those with a master's degree from a CACREP-accredited or equivalent counseling program may have met some addiction-specific course work. Those with a bachelor's degree will need additional addiction course work. Please read the educational requirements.
