We offer a 45-credit MEd degree that can be completed in one academic year. In the MEd Prevention Science degree program, training is provided in the design, evaluation, and implementation of effective interventions to reduce risk and enhance protective factors in children, youth, and families. Graduates obtain employment in community prevention settings, social advocacy centers, university settings, and as research technicians, or can continue their education in pursuit of doctoral training or clinically oriented graduate programs. Coursework is tailored so that students can seek certification through the State of Oregon’s Addictions Certification Board to become a certified prevention specialist.
