NOVA 2011-2012 College Catalog
INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS -- Learning Communities
Learning Communities are part of an innovative program for enriching student success. NOVA offers selected pairs of courses that form learning communities by linking developmental studies, honors courses, or courses related to a particular major. A common cohort of students enrolls in the linked classes and works together with faculty on shared assignments and learning opportunities. Learning Communities will focus on helping you become a better learner, while learning more about yourself and how you learn. This is an opportunity for you to get to know your professors and classmates better, to build a supportive academic network, and to improve your study skills to become a successful college student. The Student Services Center on each campus has more information about Learning Communities at NOVA.
