ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Excelsior College announced the launch of a graduate certificate program in Cannabis Control on Wednesday. The three-course, nine-credit professional certificate will help support workers in the marijuana industry.

Experts predict legal cannabis will be worth $73 billion by 2025, and many expect employment opportunities to keep up with those high revenues. Still, the rapidly expanding industry is so new, its product remains mostly illegal in New York, except for medicinal users.

“This new certificate program shows our commitment to supporting individuals seeking employment in emerging industries and will provide the needed tools for employees to stay current while working in this field.”

Excelsior’s Cannabis Control graduate certificate aims to offer rigorous online resources in support of a diverse cross section of students. Because of the complex regulatory environment surrounding marijuana, coursework will also be diverse, aligned with business, public administration, health science, and criminal justice curricula.
