The Learning Communities Option
The faculty is committed to creating a "community of learning" among students and staff. Central to that effort is the new Learning Communities Program, where innovative, active learning is encouraged in classroom and student living settings.
A learning community represents a group of students who take two of the same classes linked by theme or content. An example of "linked" courses integrating common ideas, curricula, and perspectives are World Literature II (ENGL 209) and Music Appreciation (MUSC 111).
Students may also choose to live with other students interested in this innovative learning approach in selected dormitories set aside as learning communities.
