A learning community is a first-year seminar linked to one or more general education courses that a cohort of 25 freshmen take together. Students build close friendships with their peers and make connections with their faculty, advisor, and peer mentor. Learning community students explore and apply ideas across courses and through out-of-class activities make connections between classwork and life experiences.
Whether you have a major in mind or are exploring your options, your orientation advisor can help you pick a learning community that will work for your degree program. Each learning community includes a first-year seminar and courses from the list of IUPUI general education courses so if you change majors, the credits you earn can count toward graduation.
