Learning Communities create a personalized student experience and increase student sense of belonging.

    • The Economics Linked-Learning Community allows students to connect and form relationships with their peers in their major, as well as with faculty in the Economics department. Students take an economics course together each term in their first year along with a 1-unit learning community course.
    • The Political Science and International Relations Learning Community is a year-long program designed to create a cohort of first-year students who share their passion for politics and world affairs. Learning community students take two classes together each semester in addition to a one-unit learning community course.
    • The CLST Learning Community (Department of Chicana/o, Latina/o Studies) is for students from every major in every college to create a cohort among first-year, second-year or transfer students who identify with a Latine/Latinx experience. CLST Learning Community students can take up to two classes together, with all courses working toward graduation. Meet faculty and learn about their research, connect with other students who share your interests, and create an impassioned intellectual community at LMU.
    • Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are designed for students who share a common interest or academic pursuit, to live and study in an intentional educational community. LLC's create a more academically and relationally supportive environment for students living on campus and enhance the residential and educational experience of students.
