As the cannabis industry progressively begins to integrate into our lives the opportunity to be degreed in cannabis has begun with the University of Maryland offering a Master of Science Program in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics starting in the Fall of 2020.
The University of Maryland is the first graduate program of its kind in the country focused on the study of medical cannabis and is the perfect degree for those with a bachelor’s degree who are currently looking to work in the cannabis industry.
The Master’s program will teach the basic science of medical cannabis including clinical uses, public health considerations, adverse effects, laws, and policies on the federal and state level.
University officials have stated a thesis is not required for the program and the website application deadline is April 15, 2020.
