BOSTON – Employees in municipal and state government in Massachusetts who have earned undergraduate degree may pursue a cannabis-related graduate certificate for free under a program announced this week by Clark University.
Clark officials launched their first-in-the-nation program last summer, and participants who take three online courses can obtain a Graduate Certificate in Regulatory Affairs for Cannabis Control. The program can be completed in two semesters, according to the university, and students can expect to receive a “comprehensive understanding of public policy issues involved in the cultivation, distribution, sales and regulation of adult use and medicinal-use cannabis.”
The university is based in Worcester, the city where the state Cannabis Control Commission is moving its headquarters.
The offer is a valuable one. The cost of three classes at $2,835 each is $8,505, and associated fees total $515.
