Coordinated Studies/Learning Communities
Coordinated studies integrate two or more academic disciplines in a cooperative teaching and learning environment. Coordinated studies take one of several approaches to linking courses and course work around a common theme that allows students and teachers to experience greater depths of teaching and active learning.
Students who plan to transfer to The Evergreen State College or the University of Washington-Tacoma are advised to take at least one learning community (coordinated studies or linked course) as part of their degree program.
Students are encouraged to take at least one learning community (coordinated studies or linked course) and a writing intensive course (other than composition) as part of their TCC degree electives.
Regularly offered coordinated studies and linked class are identified in the quarterly schedule.
