Ashtabula campus introduces three new majors

Three new majors will be available at the Ashtabula campus this fall.

Enology, the study of wine and winemaking; viticulture, the study of the cultivation of grapes for wine; and hospitality management were approved by Faculty Senate Monday.

The enology and viticulture degrees will be the only ones offered in Ohio. The degrees will prepare students for the large, economic wine and grape industry in Ohio, according to the agenda.

Hospitality management is already a program within the nutrition and food major at Kent State’s main campus, and Ashtabula has a post-secondary program for the study. In order to end confusion over the name of the program, the university will be offering it as its own degree on both campuses.
