Spring 2015 Linked Learning Community Offerings

What is a linked learning community?  A linked learning community is a community that links one or two academic courses with a Freshman Seminar course (COL 105) OR a community that links two or more academic courses and embeds Freshman Seminar (COL 105) principles into the linked learning community.  When you enroll in a linked learning community, you will have the same classmates in the classes that make up the linked learning community.  The linked learning community's purpose is to show you the connections between the courses while you explore a theme or specific topic that ties the courses in the community together.   The theme or specific topic of a linked learning community is stressed through integrated (common) assignments, activities, lecture topics, etc.  The linked learning communities being offered in Spring 2015 are listed below.
