Learning Communities are small groups of students and faculty who together create a “community of learners.”
When you take two or three courses together along with the same group of students, you make friends more quickly, establish study groups, and develop close relationships with faculty and the TAMIU community - and that translates into academic success.
These courses will be part of your degree plan because they are part of your core requirements.
Learning in Global Context I and II are freshman seminars designed to enhance the opportunity for success of first-year students. Most sections are part of learning communities which build an academic network that increases student learning and helps students build positive relationships with their faculty and peers.
