DENVER – Students at the University of Denver will have a new class to choose from next quarter: The business of marijuana.
The DU Clarion reports the Daniels College of Business will offer the elective course to both undergraduate and graduate students on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Professor Paul Seaborn, who will be teaching the class, told the Clarion that the course will focus on what makes the marijuana business unique from other industries.
“There’s a lot of really interesting writing and analysis being done in the media and also by academics,” Seaborn said. “We will really be tapping into all of those sources to try to get a clear picture of what’s similar and what’s different in this industry compared to other industries. Whether it’s alcohol or tobacco, even automotive or biotech. Lots of comparing and contrasting to see what makes it unique and what are the common issues these industries have experienced in these early stages.”
This will be the third marijuana-related course offered at DU. The university also has courses that cover legal issues and journalism of the cannabis industry.
