Beverage Service Management - MINOR
The Beverage Service Management minor provides students with an opportunity to acquire deeper understanding and expertise in the beverage field. With its required five courses of beverage studies, the minor enables students to further explore their passion for beverages and develop important theoretical and practical competencies needed to pursue leading, internationally recognized, beer, wine and spirits-based certifications.
Online students must be of legal drinking age: 21 years of age in the U.S. or of minimum legal drinking age in the country where they are attending the course. Please note that we periodically ask students to provide us with a government ID showing their date of birth.
