University of the Sciences will launch more medical marijuana courses

A career in the medical marijuana industry might only be a few short classes away.

The University of the Sciences last week announced three new online certificate programs on weed that expand short-term education options for medical providers, business leaders, and retail associates looking to join the rapidly growing industry.

Andrew Peterson, the executive director of the schools’ Substance Use Disorders Institute, said the certificates, which start classes in October, are an expansion of the Master’s in Business Administration program in medical cannabis that the university introduced last summer. “When we launched the MBA program, we had people say, ‘I don’t want a full degree yet, is there another option?‘”

To solve that problem, Peterson and his team launched two graduate-level certificates, one for healthcare professionals on the market and therapeutic potential of cannabis and another for those with a business background interested in applying it to the medical cannabis industry. While both programs require an undergraduate degree to enroll, they offer an alternative to the MBA for those who have less time or ability to afford that option.
