Berry program degree proposals approved
Dr. Leah Bayens with the Berry program recently announced that the St. Catharine College Board of Trustees approved the Berry Farming Program’s undergraduate degree proposals.
Beginning in fall 2013, SCC will offer Bachelor's of Arts and Bachelor's of Science degrees and a minor in farming and ecological agrarianism.
Students can focus on one of four areas of study: agroecology, plant and soil stewardship, environmental arts and humanities or community leadership.
Drawing on the work of noted farmer and writer Wendell Berry, this sustainable agriculture-oriented curriculum merges the arts and sciences of cultivation and provides numerous opportunities for experience-based learning.
