What is a Learning Community?

WHAT ARE LCs?

A Learning Community (LC) is an exciting way for first-year students to merge their academic priorities with their personal and social goals. You are assigned to a LC based on your major, and will get matched with students in the same field. You will take your first year practicum course with these students.  You will also be placed into a few other classes with the LC students. This allows you to have a built in study group of people in your major from your first day here at UTA!

In order to ensure there is a group for everyone, we also offer an option that includes students living together in one of UTA's residence halls. To learn more about these Residential Learning Communities options, please visit our Residential Learning Community page.
