About Us

Brewing Science Certificate

Turn your passion for brewing into an exciting, highly rewarding career. Our Brewing Science Certificate program prepares you to excel in a rapidly growing field—where specialized skills are now in high demand.

America’s craft brewing industry is soaring. Production grew 18% by volume and 22% by sales in 2014. Microbreweries are more prevalent now than ever, with over 150 in the mid-Atlantic region.

Combined, America’s breweries account for over 110,000 jobs—the best of which require formal, completed training in brewing science

Why USciences?

Good beer doesn’t happen by accident. Brewing is a science. And nobody knows science better than we do. 

We’re uniquely positioned to offer the mid-Atlantic region’s first Brewing Science Certificate—and with it a direct pathway to employment and career advancement.

Our post-baccalaureate, 18-credit program delves deep into the biology, chemistry, physics and math of creating the perfect pint of beer. You will benefit from a team teaching model that combines USciences faculty and facilities with experts from the brewing industry. This exposes you to:

  • Practical information and techniques
  • Valuable industry connections  
  • Hands-on experience in a cutting-edge on-site pilot brew lab

Keeping your schedule in mind, we offer flexibility with evening classes and a part-time option. You can complete the program full time in one year, or part time in two, followed by an internship with one of our exceptional local brewery partners.

Tap into a golden career opportunity. Apply today!
