Experiential and Immersive Coursework

The Science of Hemp and CBD Processing

Students learn the wide range of possibilities that the hemp industry offers. They explore the scientific techniques for growing, extracting the oil, and getting the most out of each plant. The hemp industry is rapidly growing and offers a plethora of career options and entrepreneurial possibilities.

Hemp Products, Production Systems, and Distribution

Having been cultivated for over 10,000 years, cannabis is one of the oldest agricultural crops in history. These hardy plants were grown by early humans for rope, seed, oil, fabric and medicine. Plants were selectively bred for industrial purposes, and have evolved into the type of cannabis we now know as hemp. Students will study the different products created from hemp, the technical requirements for oil extraction and processing, and the distribution challenges and potential opportunities that exist in the industry.

Understanding the Sustainable Business Landscape

This course introduces students to business with a focus on an organization’s environmental and social impact. Students will learn about the basics in corporate social responsibility, supply-chain management, finance, and non-financial reporting and accounting.
