The Certificate of Achievement in Agripharmatech has two tracks of disciplines: Plant Biotechnology, and Ethnopharmacognosy. Plant Biotechnology deals with developing and improving plant production in order to supply the world’s need for healthier (less use of pesticides), more nutritious (higher vitamin and protein content) food crops and novel ornamentals (unique colors, disease resistant). Ethnopharmacognosy is the study of traditional medicines derived from natural sources (medicinal/nutritious plants).

Students will be able to complete the certificate in 2 - 3 semesters with coursework flexible enough to prepare them for employment in plant biotechnology or pharmacognosy, and for entrepreneurship in agribusiness or plant-based product manufacturing, as well as for seamless credit transfer to higher degree institutions for the study of agriculture, horticulture, plant/microbial biotechnology, ethnobotany, pharmacognosy, pharmacy, nutrition and medicine....
