Health Science majors, Chemical Dependency Associates Degree majors, and Criminal Justice minors or by permission only. Fall, Spring Updated 18 April 2008 LEARNING OUTCOMES: . Remain the same RATIONALE: Due to the large number of students needing to take this course for the Chemical Dependency Associates degree, as well as the required seats needed for the Health Science Substance Abuse/Addictions Option, we need to restrict the course to those students who require/need this course to fulfill their major, associate’s degree, or minor courses. The majority of students who would need this course are the criminal justice minors (as an elective) and the Chemical Dependency Associates degree and Substance Abuse/Addiction Option students in Health Science (a required course). While there may be a concern that students in Psychology, Sociology, and Safety (who usually do take this course) may no longer be eligible, they are usually Associate degree candidates and able to enroll in the course. Those who are not Associate degree candidates but want to take the course can ask for permission to enroll. RESOURCES: None.
