Experience Learning Beyond the Classroom
|Participate in Group Learning Environments
Learning Communities, also called "cohorts," are ideal if you prefer a team environment where you, your classmates and teachers work closely together. Several programs include Learning Communities as part of their curriculum, which enhances the educational experience.
One of the biggest draws that Learning Communities offer is the chance to link several disciplines at once. For example, you can combine writing classes with psychology or history courses, and receive credit for both at the same time. Just think of Learning Communities as workshops that let you apply what you have learned right away.
