A Learning Community is a small group of students who are enrolled together in two joined courses, and who work in collaboration toward shared academic goals.
Learning communities at Berkshire Community College (BCC) enroll no more than 22 students and are taught by two faculty members, creating the opportunity for students and faculty to form connections in a supportive academic environment of curiosity and growth.
For more information about Learning Communities at BCC, please contact Dr. Laurie Gordy, Dean of Humanities, Behavioral and Social Sciences, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
