Brewing Science and Operations - MS, Graduate Certificate

Brewing Science and Operations - MS

The Master of Science (MS) degree in Brewing Science and Operations is designed to provide advanced education for those interested in entering or further developing their career in the craft brewing industry. The MS degree will be non-thesis and delivered entirely online, requiring a minimum of 33 semester hours to complete the degree. The non-thesis track is designed mainly for individuals interested in combining current work life with the need for educational advancement. While there will be an element of primary research attached to the completion of their non-thesis project, the project will primarily relate to some element of the student's current or intended business environment. The program will offer a blend of theoretical and applied courses created to keep students abreast of current management thinking and practice in this emerging field. Particular emphasis is placed on the concepts of good and progressive science, workplace health and safety, effective and sustainable operations, supply chain management, business planning and informed decision-making.

The program will consist of 33 credit hours to be taken across 10 x 3-6 credit hour classes and will build upon the current Graduate Certificate program in Brewing Science and Operations. These include:
