Learning Communities

The College of Undergraduate Studies Learning Communities:

First–year students at Bethune-Cookman University have the opportunity to apply to several residential College of Undergraduate Studies Learning Communities, which are groups of students enrolled in two or more linked courses.  The instructors of these courses combine content so that learning becomes more relevant and engaging.  Students are also afforded the opportunity for co-curricular activities such as field trips, guest speakers, and shared assignments.

One of the benefits of joining a learning community is the individualized attention that the student receives from the instructor in a small group setting.  Another benefit is the blocked class scheduling at registration, which provides students with a convenient class schedule and creates an environment for students to make friends and build academic relationships.  More importantly content learning is reinforced in the linked classes.
