The university has partnered with various breweries to support the program. In four years, the students can complete the degree with three internships, including one through Lourdes Irish study abroad program.

Our brewing and vineyard partners are excited to work with our students and provide them with the professional skills and knowledge needed to be successful,” Vice President for Academic Affairs Terry M.
