Learning Communities

Join a community at TCC and get the most out of college!

Why Join a Learning Community?

 


In Learning Communities, two or more of your classes are joined into one, and teachers work together to connect their content and support and mentor you. In this model, you complete needed credits for your major, create close connections with your teachers and classmates and experience a sense of community. 

  • Get to know people and make friends in your major or area of interest right away
  • Develop a supportive network with other students, peer mentors, and professors
  • Complete needed credits for your major in a supportive environment
  • Complete exciting projects that are  linked to your major and community

Students love TCC Learning Communities! 

I liked how the teachers connected their assignments and knew how to support me – I actually enjoyed coming to class. ”

Randy J., English and Human Development Learning Community
