Through a combination of classroom-based and experiential on-site learning; attention to the science and art of agriculture; and focus on both the necessity and benefits of small-scale, sustainable, and diversified food production in the context of a Jesuit education, Xavier’s Land, Farming and Community degree (LAND) offers students the opportunity to become stewards of healthy, productive soils, communities, and regions through growing, processing and distributing food.  The final three semesters of the degree program are spent largely in the field, either practicing agriculture or working in a related industry in a Land, Farming and Community practicum.
