Connecticut’s University of New Haven is partnering with cannabis education firm Green Flower on four online-only cannabis certificate programs covering business, healthcare and medicine, law and policy, and agriculture and horticulture. The college is the first in the state to collaborate with Green Flower for a cannabis education program.  

Danielle Wozniak, MSW, Ph.D., provost and vice president for academic affairs at the University of New Haven, called the partnership “a unique opportunity for the university to collaborate with an industry leader in the cannabis education industry to offer in-demand certificate programs that enable individuals from a variety of fields and interests to develop specialized knowledge and skills in some of the most important areas of the cannabis industry.”  

“Trained professionals are needed to fill the jobs that are being created now and that will be created in the future. Students will receive cutting-edge preparation in these certificate programs to prepare them to excel in this emerging and highly competitive growth market while applying ethical business practices and quality standards to the Connecticut cannabis industry.” — Wozniak in a press release 

Each certificate program consists of three eight-week courses and students receive online instruction in their chosen area of study from expert faculty members vetted and selected by Green Flower. The education programs are developed by board-certified doctors and lawyers along with experts in engineering and agriculture. 

The program costs 2,950 and students who sign up for multiple programs will be eligible for a 33% discount on each additional program. The programs begin on September 5.
