The WBA Advanced Brewing Theory (ABT) Program consists of three modules. These modules can also be taken separately if one elects to complete the program over a period of time. Throughout the duration of this intensive program, students are taught by the instructional staff of the World Brewing Academy (WBA), drawing on the talents of some of the most knowledgeable scientists, technologists and brewmasters in the world.
This program is offered online and campus, both with distinctive advantages. The campus option will allow students to participate in vibrant classroom discussions and develop close networks with fellow students while enjoying the beer culture of Chicago. On the other hand, the online optional allows students to advance through the program at their own pace, and from the comfort of their office or home without the need to travel, but still being able to participate in a "virtual" classroom.
If the online option is selected, students may take any of the 3-month modules as a separate unit, electing to complete the program at a later date. The online program is offered in three sessions per year, but only the first session which begins in January progresses in order (see below dates).
Throughout the duration of this intensive program, students are supervised by the instructional staff of the World Brewing Academy, drawing on the talents of some of the most knowledgeable scientists, technologists and brewmasters in the industry. Student progress is actively monitored throughout the program, and students can access instructors via email and chat sessions throughout the duration of the module. The average time spent studying is normally 7-10 hours per week but depends on the individual as well.
New web-based WBA Advanced Brewing Theory Program options for 2020! The web-based version of the WBA Advanced Brewing Theory program may now be taken at 3 differing sessions now. The first session is the January to October offering, with the modules running in order 1-3. The second session is the April to April the following year option, which begins with Module 2 and finishes with Module 1 the following Spring. The third option begins with Module 3 and finishes the following year with Module 2. Modules are independent of the learning, so there is no impact on the learning parameters if the modules are not taken in consecutive order.
