Concordia University Master’s Degree in Natural Product Sciences

The Concordia University School of Pharmacy has a new online master’s degree program in natural product sciences designed to give students the knowledge and skills to introduce new products and improve on current offerings at their Wisconsin campus.

            Pharmacognosy, the study of medicinal drugs obtained from natural sources, and plant biochemistry are the core disciplines of this program, which builds on science knowledge to help serve unknown and unmet needs in the natural products industry. Students can specialize in medical cannabis or nutraceuticals while engaging in comprehensive studies that address the history, therapeutic effects, risks and business side of natural-based products. This graduate degree can lead to jobs in the healthcare, pharmacy, research and development, manufacturing and business industries.
