Program Description

MA in Comparative Drug and Alcohol Studies

Middlesex University London

This master's degree is designed for those who want to expand their knowledge and understanding of these drug and alcohol issues, including policies and interventions, within a comparative context. It is relevant to policymakers and practitioners, and to students and researchers working in, associated with, or preparing to enter this field.

Over the course of the programme, you will gain the knowledge and skills required to investigate and analyse drug and alcohol use, problem use, addiction, and their responses, from a multi-disciplinary and cross-national perspective.

The master is being run jointly by four universities: Middlesex University; Aarhus University (Denmark); University del Piemonte Orientale "A. Avogardo" (Italy); and Universitas Miguel Hernandez de Elche-Alicante (Spain). With access to a group of European teachers and students, you will have opportunities to share research findings as well as experiences and personal knowledge about your own countries. You will also have the chance to study in partner universities or undertake placements in Europe and international agencies and gain career development through utilising work-based learning approaches and internships.

The programme is taught primarily through distance learning methods complemented by some face-to-face tuition. The 'Introduction to Drug and Alcohol Studies' induction is delivered as a four-and-a-half-day face-to-face intensive study block at one of the partner institutions (In 2017, this will be held at Universitas Miguel Hernandez de Elche-Alicante in Spain). It brings together staff and students from the other countries delivering the programme. Please note that travel and accommodation expenses are self-funded.
