Each semester, faculty develop learning community courses where professors team teach and connect the concepts of their disciplines under a common theme or question. Students receive credit for each class as if taking traditional classes thus transfer and graduation credits are met. A learning communities experience provides a collaborative learning environment and an opportunity to develop an understanding of the interrelationship of topics and disciplines.
