Georgetown University’s new Master's Program in Addiction Policy and Practice is a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary course of study that seeks to build a national policy workforce to respond to one of the most untreated chronic health conditions in the United States – the disease of addiction. Applications are open for our next cohort. Classes begin in July 2022.

The M.S. in Addiction Policy & Practice (ADPP) program trains leaders in the addiction policy field by providing students with a comprehensive understanding of addiction, including public health and criminal justice policy, basic science, and evidence- based prevention, treatment and recovery.

The Master’s program draws on the faculty and resources of Georgetown University’s various schools, including the Graduate School of Arts and Science, The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University Law Center, Georgetown University Medical Center, the McCourt School of Public Policy, and the basic and social science departments of Georgetown College.  

The program is completed in 1 year, from July until June of the following year, and spans a prescribed program of 30 credit hours to complete, including a capstone project. It is intended to be completed as a full-time program.

At the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, we believe your education is an investment. The Master’s Program in Addiction Policy and Practice is currently offering a fixed, flat tuition rate of $45,000 annually.
