The Interprofessional Mental Health and Addictions program is a comprehensive and challenging program, condensed into 11 months of study, to prepare you for work in the field of mental health and addictions.
What to expect
Because this is a graduate program, you’ll find it to your advantage to be proficient with word-processing and research skills acquired in your undergraduate studies. You should expect to spend 16-20 hours each week on course content, assignments, projects, and studying. The time commitment may decrease as you become skilled at using the online learning platform and reading of texts and other resources. Depending on your experience and interests, the practicum component could include project work.
The practicum delivery takes place in the second half of your studies and will be 20 hours per week at a practice site, plus on-campus seminars.
Assessment occurs in all courses, and may include research papers, literature reviews, conceptual reflections/essays, projects, and exams. We include assignments that meet a variety of learner needs and learning styles yet reflect a high standard and quality of education you would expect from a post–graduate program.
