What is a Learning Community?

Learning Communities are pairs or clusters of courses that revolve around a theme or major. If you are interested in one of these classes you must enroll in all of the classes in that group. You must enroll in person to determine if you are eligible and receive a counselor’s signature. For more information about Learning Communities, contact the instructor of record listed with the class.
