Brewing Laboratory Science

College of Natural and Health Sciences

The Brewing Laboratory Science minor is designed for students who wish to obtain an understanding of beer brewing at the microbrewery or industrial scale or for those interested in a career in the beer brewing industry. Students will obtain broad exposure to the diversity of brewing science and focus on the application of theoretical knowledge to the analysis of beer and its components. Significant laboratory work in the minor provides a strong background in the American Society of Brewing Chemist methods of beer analysis.

Students must obtain a "C-" or better in all courses that count for the minor. A strong background in science (biology, chemistry, and physics) is recommended prior to taking courses in brewing science.

Note: Zero credit hours of coursework can be shared between the declared major(s) and the Brewing Laboratory Science Minor.

Students interested in an internship in brewing laboratory science should consult with the program advisor. Students who complete the Brewing Laboratory Science Required Courses with a "B" or better (a "B-" is not sufficient) may apply to the program advisor for a Certificate in Brewing Laboratory Science.

In accordance with University Policies, coursework earned more than 10 years prior to the date of matriculation to UNC may not be used to satisfy any major or minor requirements. Any exception to this policy is at the discretion of the academic program.
