Learning communities are comprised of two or three individually instructed courses from different academic departments clustered around a common theme.    

Faculty and students within a learning community work together at key points throughout the semester for multidisciplinary discussion, shared assignments, and programming.

StudiOC learning communities are available to first-year and current students.
