Learning Communities

Learning Communities are one of the most exciting and rewarding learning opportunities for students at Skyline College. Learning Communities combine two or more hard-linked (connected) classes (Counseling and English) with G.E. requirements. Students and faculty get to know one another and work together to ensure that students are successful at college.

Students in Learning Communities enroll in a preset group of classes with other students (cohort) who share the same passion and interests in a specific field of study. Students will take these classes together over one, two, or three semesters.  Students who enroll in Learning Communities are more likely to be successful, to feel connected to their college experience, and to earn a degree.

Some benefits of joining a Learning Community:

  • Make lasting friendships
  • Overcome fears about college
  • Take an active role in your education
  • Become part of a shared experience
  • Work with dedicated counselors and instructors
  • Take advantage of helpful student services (Counseling, Financial Aid, Tutoring)
