Bachelors of Science In Chemistry with Fermentation Science Emphasis

Undergraduate Program

Learn by doing with hands-on production of fermented foods and beverages. From growing raw materials to bottling a finished product, the Fermentation Science courses will not only teach you the start-to-finish processes of making various consumables but also give you the opportunity to make them yourself with state-of-the-art, pilot scale equipment. Though the focus of these courses will be rooted in Chemistry and Microbiology, collaborations with local business leaders will expose students to the Finance, Business, and Marketing aspects of operating a fermented food/beverage company. All of this can prepare students for potential careers in the field of Fermentation Science or simply provide the knowledge necessary for hobby-scale production.
