The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences’ outreach and extension efforts trace their roots back to Liberty Hyde Bailey, the first dean of the college. Today, the Viticulture and Enology Program draws on the expertise of over 40 faculty from the departments of Horticulture, Food Science, Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology, Entomology, and the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management whose outreach encompasses the entire breadth of New York State, from Lake Erie to Long Island.
The Viticulture and Enology major increases student interest in and understanding of science by supplying a real world application. Our students don't just hear about science, they practice it every day. Graduates leave Cornell with the ability to enter the wine industry, apply their scientific knowledge to another industry or career path, or enter graduate school in a number of science fields.
