Master’s course in herbs

With the West putting a credibility crimp on herbal medicines, the interest in herbs and herbal medicines in the country has been on the up for the past few years. From personal care products to medicines for critical diseases, herbs are being used today as never before.

Recognising the trend and taking note of a growing interest in herbs, the Agri-Horticultural Society of India (AHSI) has joined hands with Jadavpur University (JU) to offer a one-year post-graduate diploma course in herbalogy, billed as the first in this part of the country. A memorandum of understanding has been inked between the 184-year-old society and the university.
