Cannabis Career Institute, a leader in cannabis business education and training from Los Angeles, and Dunlap-Stone University, a private, online institution headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona have partnered to debut the first fully accredited college course for the cannabis industry.
The first course is the entry point for degree specializations supporting careers in cannabis. Example: Bachelors of Health Administration with a specialization in Cannabinoid Therapies, Bachelors of Business with a Specialization in Cannabis Operations.
Here is the course description:
This six-week online survey course, which is an elective in the healthcare administration program, explores the modern cannabis industry from the perspective of the emerging industry and its career possibilities. It briefly discusses the history of cannabis in the U.S., including the myths and stigma associated with the plant. It examines the recent phenomena of medical usage and scientific discoveries related to cannabis and its derivatives. Emphasis is placed on understanding the various emerging career opportunities within the industry for those who possess the requisite skill sets. The course also examines the current legal issues and other challenges facing this growth industry.
“Our curriculum development specialists paid special attention to making this course a balanced, unbiased presentation of the facts about this rapidly growing industry and the career opportunities it represents,” said Dr. Donald Burton, President of Dunlap-Stone University. “I believe students everywhere will be amazed by what is happening in the cannabis industry today. The growth in jobs and careers is staggering.” Dr. Burton was quick to point out that what made the course possible was the university staff worked closely with subject matter experts from Cannabis Career Institute (CCI), the nation’s leading career knowledge resource for the industry.
“This program, made possible by the insightful faculty and management team at Dunlap-Stone University with the assistance of subject matter experts from the Cannabis Career Institute, is an important breakthrough in cannabis education,” said Dr. Bedore, President of Cannaworx and a CCI faculty member. “By having this nationally accredited program available online to the world, it advances awareness of the cannabis industry’s benefits, as well as highlights the related career opportunities.”
