Thank you for your interest in the Master's program offered by the Viticulture & Enology Graduate Group at UC Davis.

The Graduate Group offers two options leading to the same Master of Science degree in Viticulture & Enology:

The Plan I option is a Thesis Master's Program for students who wish to do a standard research thesis in conjunction with a faculty advisor in the graduate group

The Plan II option is a Professional Science Master's degree which incorporates a winery internship and a comprehensive examination to lead to a non-thesis Master's degree

The application for admissions to both programs is the same, and students need not commit to either degree program until admitted.

The Department of Viticulture and Enology is committed to building and nurturing a community of inclusion, one that thrives on diversity, equity and equality. The foundation of our community is respect for each other and for that which makes us different.  The discovery,  innovation, and application of new knowledge, for which we are known internationally, derives from the vibrancy and connectedness of our diverse and extended community of current and former student, staff, industry and faculty members. We embrace the UCD Principles of Community and  “confront and reject all manifestations of discrimination, including those based on race, ethnicity, gender and gender expression, age, visible and non-visible disability, nationality, sexual orientation, citizenship status, veteran status, religious/non-religious, spiritual, or political beliefs, socio-economic class, status within or outside the university, or any of the other differences among people which have been excuses for misunderstanding, dissension or hatred.”
