Spring 2021 Learning Community: Twice the Fun!
Learning Communities pair two courses that are team-taught by two instructors. Students are automatically enrolled in both courses, although check with your advisor to make sure! Because... technology. Instruction, coursework, and assignments develop disciplinary skills and interconnections between the disciplines. Watch a retro (couple years back) video about Learning Communities to find out more.

Students will study regional environmental concerns while considering the dynamics of inequality and the cultural distinctions that influence those environmental issues, and they will study the artifacts of social movements in order to empower themselves as environmental activists. They will engage with campus and the broader community with projects that involve hands-on experience and multi-genre expression.Prerequisite(s): Completion of ENGL 96 or or ENGL 99 with a grade of 2.0 or higher or placement into ENGL&101.
