Other Degree Requirements


In addition to the major program requirements, every student must also complete the University’s baccalaureate degree requirements such as:

  • American Government and Institutions (PLSI 2 )
  • General Education Requirements (48 units)
  • Multicultural and International (MI) - Viticulture majors are exempt from the MI requirement
  • Upper-division Writing
  • Sufficient Elective Units to Meet Required Total Units (varies); it is recommended that units in this area be utilized to complete a second major or minor.

A full description of the University’s graduation requirements can be found in the Baccalaureate Degree Requirements .

Total Units: 120*


*General Education, MI, and Upper-division Writing courses can be double counted with major requirements. These courses include CHEM 3A  (Area B1), BIOL 11  (Area B2), MATH 11  (Area B4), and AGBS 1  (Area D2). See advisor for details.

Advising Notes


  1. During the Add/Drop period of their first semester, students are required to attend a department undergraduate orientation session. Alternatively, they are required to meet with the department chair. In either case, they will be assisted in selecting an appropriate faculty advisor.
  2. Students meet with their academic advisors prior to registration each fall semester.
  3. General Education courses designated as required by the department are prerequisites to many courses in the program of study.
  4. CR/NC grading is not permitted for courses included in the major except for VIT 194I .
  5. Upper-division G.E. courses (i.e., 100-level course) should not be attempted prior to the semester in which 60 units toward the degree have been completed.
  6. The upper-division writing skills requirement can be met by taking a 3- to 4-unit W course (e.g., PLANT 110W ) and pass a grade of C or higher.
  7. Viticulture students are encouraged to become certified crop scientists/specialists and pest control advisors (PCAs). Students should consult their faculty advisor for additional requirements for certification.
  8. All courses listed under the major and additional requirements require a grade of C or better.
