Nmu Medicinal Plant Chemistry Degree

Recommended Posts

I have to say that I had a class right after an organic chemistry class at NMU, and on test days many people were leaving that class darn near in tears.

 

 

New degree program for 2017

 

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - A new bachelor's degree program is coming to Northern Michigan University in the fall of 2017.

 

The university's board of trustees approved the medicinal plant chemistry program Friday at their board meeting.

The program will prepare students for success in emerging industries relating to plant production, analysis and distribution.

Board members said the program will be unique in Michigan and leading edge in the country.

"There was a real need to be able to study, to be able to understand, the components of medicinal plants and so we think this is a really innovative program and I think one of the only ones in the country," Northern Michigan University President Fritz Erickson said.

The four-year program will combine experimental horticulture and advanced analytical chemistry with an optional entrepreneurial track.

By the end of the program, students will get hands-on experience cultivating and harvesting legal plants

In case you don't know, medical marijuana is legal in Michigan, so yes I would assume so.

That's a tough class. Lots of memorization. Lots of math formulas. I bet they were tears of relief. All that cramming, long nights with a book. We always partied after the tests. The tests were landmarks, a huge part of your grade. And that could be the hardest class you had that semester. 

One of the guys that runs the hydro shop near me went through a horticulture program like this one. I don't think it makes him any extra money. Make sure you have a clear plan to make the most of your education.

Yes, but only legal for certain qualified people. So they will not be growing marijuana in that class.

Growing no, but the chemistries and uses of plants is what the class is about.
