Learning Communities

Learning Communities, Olympia Campus

At the Olympia campus, you can enroll in learning communities or "links" in which two or more courses are combined in the same classroom. You register and earn credits for each of the courses linked in the learning community. The courses are often taught by multiple professors, each bringing their own discipline and expertise to the learning community. You will spend all of your class time together, integrating different disciplines and subjects (such as Psychology and English). You'll find that your learning is deeper and more interesting and that in the learning communities you will connect more to fellow students and professors.

Fall 2018 Learning Community

The Learning Community for Fall 2018 will focus on religious traditions of the world, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. We will learn about each of these traditions, their cultural histories, theologies, and ritual practices as we develop our academic writing skills. All major assignments and papers will count for both the ENGL and HUM courses.
