Learning Communities (LC) allow students to enroll in a preset group of classes with other students who share the same passions, interests, or specific field of study. Students take major and general education classes together (between 1-3 semesters) and work closely with specific faculty and counselors assigned to their learning community and invested in student success. Programs are co-created for students starting higher education journeys at Skyline College.
We invite you to explore your Learning Community options with your Counselor using
the Learning Community Courses and Schedules handout and link to the courses on WebSchedule
