With a program designed from the beginning to deliver an exceptional online learning experience, modules carefully crafted by expert instructors and active psychedelic and cannabinoid researchers from top-ranked STEMM and Liberal Arts programs will be available for your benefit, wherever you learn best. With a curriculum that connects chemistry and culture; equity and ethnobotany; and phenomenology and pharmacokinetics, your Master’s degree will provide the knowledge and skills needed to succeed when working within the complex scientific, regulatory, and societal frameworks surrounding the application of psychoactive pharmaceuticals.
Get in on the Ground Floor of Leadership
The investigation of next-generation therapeutic approaches using psychedelics, entheogens, cannabinoids, and other psychoactive substances is rapidly accelerating. This dramatic expansion highlights the need for a highly trained workforce ready to address the unique challenges associated with development and deployment of these interventions. Therefore, our transdisciplinary faculty developed the first-of-its-kind, Psychoactive Pharmaceutical Investigation Master’s program at the University of Wisconsin–Madison to support those graduates who will be the future leaders of this exciting growth industry.
Upon graduation, you will hold a gold-standard academic credential demonstrating your mastery, and understanding of:
- Unique pharmacologic and physiologic considerations for CNS drug development and delivery projects
- Laws, regulations, and ethical principles surrounding application of psychoactive pharmaceuticals
- Historical pressures, current challenges, and cutting-edge discoveries that will shape the future of psychedelic and cannabinoid research
