The University of Western Scotland (UWS) are hosting an online open evening for the UWS Contemporary Drug and Alcohol Studies Programme.
The innovative MSc Contemporary Drug & Alcohol Studies is a social science programme aimed at students who wish to develop a specialist knowledge of substance use, policy, and practice. The programme provides a supportive and transformative learning experience that links theory and practice, and critically engages with research evidence, to inform how state and society can best respond to substance use.
UWS prioritise the development of students’ transferable skills to maximise employability. Graduates go on to take up employment in drug/alcohol services (in the statutory/voluntary sectors) and in broader health, community, youth, criminal justice, housing, social work and social care professions, as well as in policy and research environments. If you are employed in services already, the course is useful for career advancement and continuing professional development.
The course offers full time, part time, campus and distance learning options. Admission is with an honours degree in social science or equivalent. Or, significant relevant work experience.
