Learning Communities

A Learning Community links courses and disciplines so that students and their professors experience a coherent and enriched learning environment together.

Pace University offers two kinds of Learning Communities:

1)   Two paired integrated and coordinated courses, each taught by a different professor in a different discipline. Students must register for both sections of the Learning Community OR
2)   an interdisciplinary (INT) course taught by a team of two professors from different disciplines and focused on a particular theme.

In either case, Learning Communities provide an ideal setting for college students to develop a sense of responsibility and community; an increased interaction among students and faculty; a rich, learning-centered environment; active and collaborative learning; exploration and understanding of diverse perspectives and a deeper understanding of course materials.
