Welcome to Learning Communities!

A Learning Community is an exciting way to take courses at both campuses!

In a Learning Community, a group of students takes two or more of their required courses together. These courses are intentionally designed by one, two, or more faculty members who work closely together to coordinate writing assignments and projects, and this cooperation provides unique opportunities for deeper learning through meaningful engagement with each discipline. Learning communities may have a theme, a driving question, on and off-campus field experiences, or a cooperative project, along with other exciting opportunities for personal and professional growth.

Recognized as a High-Impact Practice by the Association of American Colleges and Universities, AAC&U, Learning Communities enrich the learning experiences for both students and faculty.

Accelerated Learning Program (ALP)

ENG 101 with TRS 099 or ESL 201

Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) is an option for students who place just below college-level in reading and writing. Instead of taking a prerequisite class (taking a basic English course one semester and ENG 101 the next semester), you take ENG 101 and TRS 099 or ENG 101, which provides extra support for the work you’re doing in ENG 101. This saves a semester of coursework. The same structure is available for ENG 101 with ESL 201.

It works like this: you show up for ENG 101 and then go to TRS 099 or ESL 201 immediately afterward. The same professor teaches both classes, so you continue to work on your ENG 101 assignments in TRS 099 or ESL 201. It is more than a workshop/lab, however. The professor will teach you the skills that ENG 101 expects you to already have and will help you to better understand your own learning and stay on track with both courses. One ALP learning community listed below is for MMAP majors, and the two ALP learning communities noted above offer additional pairings with PSY 101-05A or CRJ 101/CRJ 103.
