Program Overview

This certificate aims to provide students with fundamental principles and concepts of biochemistry, microbiology, and engineering, as well as entrepreneurial aspects and small business ownership, all through the lens of craft brewing. Successful and consistent brewing is largely dependent on a firm understanding of the science behind the process. But craft brewing is far more than brewing science. Craft breweries are small businesses that require specific skillsets for management, planning, marketing, social media presence, and operation. Craft breweries often fail because they do not fully understand and/or appreciate the business skills necessary for small business ownership. Therefore, this program aims to help bring together students with science backgrounds with business-minded students to provide a translational, peer-led learning environment. Bringing these diverse groups of students together will facilitate the exchange of knowledge across disciplines that is lacking in many industries (not only in craft brewing).
