What is a Learning Community?

  • Two classes, taught by two instructors, linked or integrated that focus around a particular theme, often with common readings and activities.
  • A group of students who are enrolled in the same courses with the same instructors.

What are the benefits of a Learning Community?

  • Students form partnerships and teams, and make connections between subjects
  • Students and faculty work together in a supportive environment
  • Students and faculty work together to create a sense of community
  • Students are encouraged to learn and to reflect on their learning

In a Learning Community, you have the opportunity to take two or more courses together, get credit for both, learn and study with the same group of students. You will benefit from learning from two or more faculty members who have planned the courses together, teach the courses together and have created an exciting theme-based curriculum that will help you towards your academic goals.
