Liberal & Applied Arts
In the College of Liberal and Applied Arts, four separate Learning Communities are being offered to students in the Fall 2019 semester. Each of these Communities is comprised of two classes that apply to students’ core curriculum requirements and a 1-hour Introduction to Research Methods course. Each of the Communities is limited to between 20 and 25 students, and each course will be taught by experienced, engaging faculty members.
Participating in a Learning Community is a proven method to form relationships with faculty and fellow students that contribute to academic success. The 1-hour Research Methods component is included as part of a university initiative to increase students’ opportunities for hands-on learning during the course of their academic career. Applied research skills are one of the factors that make college graduates more desirable to employers across all fields and professions.
