Graduate Program of Addictive Behaviours
GRADUATE CERTIFICATE, GRADUATE DIPLOMA AND MASTER OF ADDICTIVE BEHAVIOURS
The Graduate Program of Addictive Behaviours is delivered in partnership with Turning Point, Australia’s leading addiction treatment, research and education centre. It offers three levels of study (Graduate Certificate (M4018), Graduate Diploma (M5022) and Expert Master Degree (M6014)). Each course builds upon units offered in the previous qualification and provides pathways for further study and postgraduate research opportunities in addiction. All courses are delivered fully online and part time to meet your professional development and higher education needs.
You will learn from local and international experts about contemporary addiction issues to support the health and social wellbeing of people and communities affected by substance use (alcohol, prescription medication or illicit drugs), process addictions (gambling or gaming) and other emerging addictive behaviours.
Whether you are looking to change careers, improve your professional practice and/or progress to a more senior role in addiction or related health, social or community sectors, we have a course to support your career progression!
Study with us and you will benefit from collaborations between Turning Point, Monash Addiction Research Centre, Eastern Health Clinical School and other addiction experts from around the world committed to responding more effectively to addiction and improving the lives of individuals, families and communities.
Together, we can make a difference and change the way we treat addiction.
