Learning Communities Program Students

What are Learning Communities?

  • Learning communities are linked or clustered classes: the same group of students takes two or more classes together.

  • The classes themselves are linked: the teachers have organized readings and other activities around common themes or questions.

Why should you take a Learning Community?

  • Students who take learning communities are more likely to do well in all of their courses.

  • Students work together and support each other.

  • Assignments from the different courses are related to each other.

  • Faculty members who teach the classes work closely with all the students.
