Learning Communities

What Are Learning Communities?

Learning Communities combine the content of two or more courses. A common cohort of students enrolls in the linked classes, and faculty work together on shared assignments and learning opportunities.

The goal is to build community and to foster connections among students and their professors and disciplines. Learning Communities provide an opportunity for students to build a supportive academic network and to make connections within NOVA.
