A learning community is 20-25 first-semester students who co-enroll in two or more
courses that are linked together with a common theme. Some learning communities are
for specific academic majors, such as business, nursing, education, or dance. Other
learning communities are suitable for a variety of majors and carry themes ranging
from “green” living, to social justice, to gender studies and more. The courses in
learning communities count toward university degree requirements and are taught by
faculty dedicated to helping new students achieve academic success.
