Learning Communities

Learning Communities are groups of courses that are linked together by a common theme. Ideally, learning communities support learning to learn as a social act. Students enrolled will bring the confidence and social energy fostered by membership in the community into the classroom.

  • Participate in a sharing of curriculum and assignments which provides a consistent interdisciplinary experience that promotes a deeper type of learning than regular courses.
  • Students in developmental classes can work on skills and earn transfer credits in some pairings!
  • Develop shared knowledge
  • Actively learn and reflect on your learning
  • Create “links” and apply the objectives of both courses through curriculum and real life experience
