UConn launches minor in cannabis cultivation

The University of Connecticut has added a new minor in cannabis cultivation.

The 15-credit minor was formalized in the spring 2023 semester and focuses on the propagation, cultivation, commercial production, maintenance, processing and potential markets for one species of cannabis, Cannabis sativa. As part of the curriculum, students will receive credit for approved internships with growers and companies.

“Since we launched the nation’s first cannabis horticulture course, UConn has been a leader in cannabis education and research,” says Indrajeet Chaubey, dean of the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources. “We are thrilled to add another mechanism for students to formalize the skills, knowledge, and expertise in cannabis studies that they gain while at UConn.”
