Addiction Studies - program course sequence

To assist students in planning their schedules, Diablo Valley College has prepared a list of required courses to be offered each semester. This list is subject to change due to fiscal constraints and availability of staff and/or facilities, but it should help you in planning your schedule. In addition to these required courses you must complete six units of elective courses. By scheduling your classes according to this course sequencing guide, you will be able to finish the major requirements/certificate of achievement in two years or less depending on the number of units you take each semester. Verify offerings with program faculty, counselors and the online schedule of classes.
