The Brewing Arts program on the USF St. Petersburg campus is a 23-week online program that provides participants with the foundational knowledge and hands-on training for a successful career in the industry of craft brewing. Many students work full time while completing the program and participants can take classes from anywhere in the U.S. or across the globe.  The program currently offers two courses per year, which start in February and August.

The online coursework goes through the entire process of brewing learning, from the base ingredients to the science and business of craft beer. The program is taught by both professionals and academics in the field and is followed by a hands-on training experience in a brewery to apply knowledge learned. The program is designed for hobbyists and enthusiasts looking to learn more about the art of brewery, to those who wish to work in a brewery and who may aspire to open a brewery one day.
