This used to be thought of as a joke but now it is actually a field with opportunity. You’d be more likely to get a job with this degree than any “studies” program.

University of Maryland is first in the nation to launch degree in medical cannabis science

The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy has launched the nation’s first Master of Science program in medical cannabis science and therapeutics.

The university says the degree will provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to support patients and the medical cannabis industry.

The program will be based at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) in Rockville, Md. It will be a two-year program designed for any individuals who has completed his or her undergraduate degree and is interested in pursuing a career in the medical cannabis industry.

“Medical cannabis has been legalized in 33 states, including Maryland, as well as in Washington, D.C., Guam, and Puerto Rico,” says Natalie D. Eddington, PhD, FCP, FAAPS, dean and professor of the School of Pharmacy. “This number is only expected to increase in the future, fueling a demand for an educated workforce that is well-trained in both the science and therapeutic effects associated with this medicinal plant. Our MS in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics has been critically designed to prepare students to meet this demand.

Innovations in instructional design throughout the curriculum will provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to make a positive impact on communities across the United States.”
