This cross-disciplinary program prepares individuals for employment in many areas of the wine industry, including tourism, hospitality services, retailing, wine sales, marketing, and tasting room and event management.
Admission to the minor requires admission to the Wine Trade Professional Certificate Program. Students must be 21 years of age or older and must apply for acceptance into the program. Permission of the GWS certificate advisor is required.
Because the Global Wine Study (GWS) courses are in a self-supported program: no tuition waiver programs apply for GWS courses. Additional course fees and continuing education tuition apply. Tuition for GWS classes may be higher than regular CWU tuition. Tuition for the FCSG and RT courses will be at the regular CWU tuition rate and waivers can be applied to the FCSG and RT courses.
