The Department of Viticulture & Enology offers two non-credit professional certificates tailored for those interested in careers in the grape and wine industry. These certificate programs are taught by Washington State University faculty and leaders in the Washington wine and grape industries.

Each certificate consists of a series of online courses over an 18-month period. The courses can be completed at the time of day that best suits your schedule—perfect for the busy professional.

Three weekend camps provide students with hands-on experience working directly with grapevines, crushing grapes, conducting lab analyses, evaluating wines, and participating in other on-site activities. They also provide networking opportunities with instructors, fellow students, and wine industry professionals. These camps are required and take place in Prosser and Richland, WA.
