Learning Communities

Learning Communities offer students a great way to learn and to connect with other students! As a student in a learning community, you will be part of a group of no more than 25 students in courses that are “linked.”  Your professors work together to help you make connections among the courses, which share a common theme, problem, and/or public issue. You will get additional support as the learning communities program has its own advisers and other support services. In addition, some learning communities can be used to satisfy the writing intensive requirement.

There are three types of learning communities we offer at Kingsborough: Learning communities for Incoming students, Learning communities for Incoming freshmen in need of English Language Support and Learning communities for Continuing Students. Click below to learn more
