• Liberal Arts Learning Communities

    Learning Communities are groupings of two or more courses, often surrounding a common theme. There are two types of Learning Communities, Clusters (consisting of three or more classes) and Pairs (consisting of two classes).

    Learning Communities can help you:

    • Make connections among courses
    • Form a community with your classmates
    • Work closely with faculty
    • Be more successful in your courses
    • Be more likely to stay in school and graduate

    The clusters and pairs are listed below. To help you determine which themes and courses interest you most and which schedule works best for you, each includes a full description and schedule with CUNYFirst registration section codes.
