Curricular Learning Community (CLC)

What is a curricular learning community?

A learning community is “Any one of a variety of curricular structures that link together several existing courses—or actually restructure the material entirely—so that students have opportunities for deeper understanding and integration of the material they are learning and more interaction with one another and their teachers are fellow participants in the learning enterprise.” (Gabelnick, MacGregor, Mathews, and Smith, 1990, p. 19.)

What types of courses comprise the CLCs at Missouri State?

We currently have two course options for our curricular learning communities. The first is GEP 101 combined with COM 115. The other option is GEP 101 linked with BMS 110.
