Learning Communities

Students in the City Colleges of Chicago can often enroll in Learning Communities, where they experience a multidisciplinary exposure to a complex idea or problem.  In a Learning Community, students enroll in a collection of classes with a common theme such as:

  • Social Justice
  • Clean and Sustainable Energy
  • Climate Change
  • Urban Asthma

By taking courses in general education areas, such as English, Math, Science, Humanities and others, students are able to gain a broad and unique perspective of complex relevant issues, and how they cross traditional disciplinary lines.  Students proceed through the classes a cohort, seeing the same classmates in each class, and take part in projects that spread out over classes.
