Learning Communities

Join a community at TCC and get the most out of college!

What is a Learning Community?


In Learning Communities, two or more of your classes are joined into one, and teachers work together to connect their content and support and mentor you.

  • Get to know people and make friends in your major or area of interest right away
  • Develop a supportive network with other students, peer mentors, and professors
  • Undecided? Learn about degree and career options
  • Complete needed credits for your major in a supportive environment
  • Complete exciting projects that are linked to your major and community

I liked how the teachers connected their assignments and knew how to support me – I actually enjoyed coming to class. ”
