The program would teach students how to grow, care for, and sell both medical and recreational pot.

New York is expected to legalize recreational marijuana this year. But college officials say even if the measure doesn't pass, there are still plenty of cannabis industry jobs outside the state.

The program still needs approval from college administration.
