Next fall, Auburn University in Alabama will become only the second university in the country to offer a degree in brewing beer. With this new degree, the University is attempting to tap into the booming craft brew industry. Auburn’s Department of Nutrition, Dietetics, and Hospitality Management has worked closely with the business and engineering schools to create a comprehensive curriculum for the new graduate certification in brewing science.
The new beer brewing program will offer six courses covering a mixture of science, engineering and facilities, brewing materials, and the business of brewing. The program will become available to a limited number of applicants in fall 2014.
