Learning Communities for Fall Quarter 2018

 

Learning communities are a mash up of two distinct courses, taught by two fabulous instructors, for double the credits and double the time. Students say learning communities help them to think about subjects in new and more meaningful ways. Cascadia is offering the following three learning communities during Winter Quarter.
