Themed learning communities (TLCs) link three or more first-year courses and offer a structured first-semester learning environment where students can easily develop a strong sense of community and see connections across disciplines. Students in each block, or themed learning community, enroll as a cohort in the same linked courses selected by the academic schools. In TLCs, instructors collaborate in advance to choose a theme and develop common learning experiences.
TLCs engage students, faculty, librarians, advisors, and others in a community of learners that explore interdisciplinary connections, both in and out of the classroom, to foster enriching learning experiences.
