    Learning Communities 



      

    Learning communities are courses clustered around a common theme and taught to the same cohort of liberal arts students by a faculty team. Readings and assignments are shared so that students may better understand connections among different disciplines and to learn with a community of their peers. Students in LaGuardia's learning communities are actively engaged in inquiry and analysis, and critical and creative thinking through teamwork and problem solving. As a result, students who participate in learning communities are more likely to pass their courses and to stay in college.

     

    Since 1974, the Liberal Arts Clusters have offered students a full-time introductory program in the liberal arts, and many of the themes speak to the college's immigrant population and its mission by addressing issues of freedom, work, and diversity. Students take a wide variety of courses including Composition I, The Research Paper, Introduction to Philosophy, Theatre, Sociology, Music, Anthropology, Film, and Media Studies in themed clusters with titles such as "Sex, Money and Pop Culture," "Blacklash: The Urban Black Experience," "Global Politics," and "Constructing Identity."
