A Learning Community is a group of students studying, collaborating, and learning together. The experience is designed to help students make new friends and build lasting relationships with peers, professors, tutors, librarians, academic advisors, and the student development team.
Learning Communities also offer students the chance to experience college in a whole new way, offering an integrated learning experience and giving them a chance to explore subjects both inside and outside of the classroom. Field outings expand their knowledge and allow them to create exciting memories with a new network of peers.
Learning Communities benefit students by helping them:
- Develop a network of supportive peers and professors who will help them successfully begin their college careers
- Overcome challenges, so that they may begin their educational journey on a smooth road to success
- Integrate into the Berkeley College community, allowing them to truly experience The Berkeley Advantage®
- Form lasting relationships, both inside and outside of the classroom
Learning Communities are only offered at the Berkeley College on-site locations. Individuals should contact their Academic Advisor for more information.
