Experience-based Education Credits (11:400:494)*
Rutgers students who successfully complete the Grape and Wine Science Certificate Program may participate in the Grape and Wine Science Internship Program to obtain a paid internship at a NJ winery. The requirements are identical to the SEBS-SPIN program where students identify an employer who is willing to hire them and then the student intern, in consultation with his/her supervisor, develops an internship plan and learning goals. Students should register for 3 credits and will be expected to complete 160 work hours on a full-time or part-time basis. Students who are not SEBS students should obtain permission from their program director, department chairperson, or faculty advisor to register for this course.
Information about the SEBS-SPIN Program can be found here: https://sebsspin.rutgers.edu
Special Topics in Grape & Wine Science (11:400:408)*
Rutgers students who successfully complete the Grape and Wine Science Certificate Program can register for Special Topics in Grape and Wine Science to obtain 2 academic course credits that can be applied to their degree requirements. Students are required to write a literature review paper on a topic of their choice for a letter grade. This course allows students to explore a selected topic within the discipline in greater depth and to sharpen their written communications skills.
*Only matriculated Rutgers students, in good academic standing, are eligible for these courses.
Dr. Tepper is the Director of the Grape and Wine Science Certificate Program and is the faculty advisor for the above courses. All inquiries should be directed to her. Students must also obtain her permission to register for these courses.
