Learning Communities for Continuing Students

Learning Communities for Continuing Students

Learning communities without the First Year Seminar (SD 10) are appropriate for you as long as you have met prerequisites needed for every course in the link. Some of these learning communities may include a one-credit Integrative Seminar, which is designed to help support and integrate what you are learning in your other courses.

Two examples of a learning community for continuing students are...

The Pursuit of Happiness

This learning community links Composition II (ENG 24), History of Philosophy: The Classical Philosophers (PHIL 71), and an Integrative Seminar (ENG 5050), and asks the question. What really makes us happy? In this link, we explore happiness from a variety of perspectives (for example, ethical, sociological, and psychological, among others) and through a variety of assignments, readings, and films–many of which will be shared among the courses.

​Life on Planet Earth

This learning community links Composition II (ENG 24) and Introduction to Earth Science (EPS 38) and offers an interdisciplinary space for us to learn about, explore, and interrogate some of the issues we experience as creatures of planet Earth. In this link you we will consider questions such as, What does it mean to have a strong sense of place? and How can we live more sustainably on Earth?
