Programs leading to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree incorporate university requirements, general education requirements, college requirements and major program requirements. The first three govern requirements for scholarship, units, and residency and require classes in English composition, topical breadth and core literacies. Major requirements are divided into three categories: preparatory (usually lower-division classes in basic subjects), depth (upper division classes in areas directly related to the major) and restricted electives (courses in areas more peripherally related to the major). Students may also find time for a limited number of elective classes covering topics outside of their major field of study.
There are three ways to enter the B.S. program.
1. Admission as a freshman
To enter as a freshman, you must gain admission through the University Admissions office.
2. Admission as a transfer student
Transfer student admission is limited to the fall. Applications are due in November for the matriculation the following fall. Preliminary contact with an adviser in Viticulture & Enology is recommended to ensure that you are following an appropriate preparatory program in order to meet the coursework and GPA requirements. Please click here for specific requirements for transferring in to the Department of Viticulture & Enology. In addition to the department requirements, students must also meet university admission requirements.
3. Change of major
Students from other majors on campus may change their degree objective into this major, provided they have met the coursework and GPA requirements found here.
