Beverage Service Management - MINOR

As of June 23, 2020, programs in this catalog will no longer be offered to new students at the Denver campus.  At the close of the 2020-2021 academic year (subject to possible courses through the summer of 2021), no programs in this catalog will be offered to any students at the Denver campus, as the Denver and North Miami campuses will be closing after the end of the 2020-2021 academic year (subject to possible courses through the summer of 2021).

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.
