Program Overview

The USC Master of Addiction Science (MAS) is designed for students interested in transdisciplinary and inter-professional approaches to the study of addiction. At the present time there are courses offered across multiple disciplines that allow students to gain a perspective in addiction from an array of science and policy aspects.

However, there is no singular unifying degree or course program solely focused on addiction studies. By interacting with instructors and peers from a variety of disciplines and professions, students in the MAS program will obtain a broader and deeper understanding and set of skills that considers addiction from the ‘cell to society perspective.’ As such, MAS graduates will be poised to take the knowledge and skills gained in the program back to their respective current or future professions to enhance interdisciplinary and interprofessional collaboration.
