Concordia University's School of Pharmacy has a new online master’s degree program in natural product sciences. It is designed to give individuals the knowledge and skills to be leaders in the ever-changing and growing field of natural products. Students will learn about natural medicines so that they may help introduce new products and improve on current offerings.

Pharmacognosy (the study of medicinal drugs obtained from natural sources) and plant biochemistry are the core disciplines in this program which will build on scientific knowledge in order 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.
