Learning Communities

A unique education opportunity!

In a Learning Community, you enroll in two linked classes with the same group of students. The professors work together so that the course content overlaps. By the end of the semester, you see and understand all of the important, meaningful connections between the two subjects. 

Learn more and see how to register.

Once you choose a Learning Community, register for each course in MyPima. Contact Kristy Snowden at [email protected] for more information.
