Any student admitted to the MA in General Psychology is eligible for the CMHSAC. However, students apply separately for the CMHSAC after having been admitted to and registered for MA courses.
To apply to the CMHSAC, students must submit the CMHSAC enrollment form, which is distributed during the first few weeks of the Introduction to Substance Abuse Counseling course, by October 1.
Students who intend to participate in fieldwork must first successfully complete Adult Psychopathology, Psychopathology III, Introduction to Substance Abuse Counseling, and Advanced Issues in Substance Abuse Counseling. Field placements are not guaranteed for every student who is interested. Site availability, student academic performance, and student readiness are factors in determining externship opportunities.
Qualified seniors at Eugene Lang College (seniors who have already taken Psychology courses) may register for the Introduction and Advanced Substance Abuse Counseling courses in the CMHSAC curriculum, subject to normal restrictions and with permission from course instructors. Students in the Lang BAMA Program are also strongly encouraged to apply to the CMHSAC.
It is extremely important that students consult with student advisors and review the CMHSAC handbook before registering for any of the courses offered in the CMHSAC. Email the CMHSAC with any questions.
