About Our Program

CWU Craft Brewing began in 2009 with a partnership between the College of the Sciences and the office of Continuing Education.  It started with a certificate program designed by CWU Faculty with feedback from an Advisory Board of industry professionals.  The goal was to create a program that would provide skilled and educated professionals in the growing brewing industry. Fall of 2015 a Bachelor of Science degree in craft brewing was created and launched. The interdisciplinary degree, which incorporates classes from the certificate program, was approved on April 20, 2015 by the CWU Board of Trustees.  It remains the only Bachelor of Science degree in Craft Brewing in Washington State.  CWU Craft Brewing continues to offers the Craft Brewing Degree and the Brewing Certificate to best serve our students and their needs.


CWU Craft Brewing addresses the industry's need for highly trained and educated professionals in brewing.


Teaching the Art & Science of Brewing. CWU Craft Brewing bridges the gap between higher education and industry. Our students will master the art, science, business, and technology behind brewing. The program will also provide services that advance quality and integration of best practices in the brewing industry.
