Learning Communities offer students a great way to learn and to connect with other students! As a student in a learning community, you will be part of a group of no more than 25 students in courses that are “linked.” Your professors work together to help you make connections among the courses, which share a common theme, problem, and/or public issue. You will get additional support as the learning communities program has its own counselors, advisers, and other support services. In addition, some learning communities can be used to satisfy the writing intensive requirement.
