Learning Communities at St. Ambrose University

Bookmark and Share


Ambrose Learning Communities offer terrific advantages to first-year students by allowing you to take a cluster of courses suited to your interests and needs, and to do so with a group of your peers with similar interests.

Learning Communities include two general education courses, a New Student Seminar, and Information Literacy. Some communities are designed to introduce you to your major, while others focus on current issues and events on campus and around the world.

The benefits of taking courses in a learning community include the opportunity to learn about ideas from more than one perspective; learning with a familiar group of your peers; and having professors who work together to help you connect your learning, research, and the transition to college in a meaningful way.
