A learning community at Buffalo State is a cluster of courses designed around a common theme. All learning community students will be registered as full time students with at least 15 credits. All courses in the learning community are mandatory and must be taken in the same semester. The professors plan their curriculum to address the theme. They also plan co-curricular learning experiences that extend the learning outside the classroom. A learning community is an amazing experience that is difficult to obtain in any other setting.
