Student standing:  
I am currently a senior in the department.  

Degree/Focus/interest areas: 
One unique feature about the viticulture and enology program at UC Davis is that undergraduate students must complete courses in both disciplines. That being said, I have found that even though I originally thought that I would prefer viticulture, I have thoroughly enjoyed the courses with a focus in enology. Going forward, I would like to pursue positions that have roles in both disciplines.
