Special Opportunities

A Themed Learning Community is a group of two to four courses taken by the same set of approximately 25 students over the course of a semester. These courses are taught in a way that will allow you to explore a common theme across all of the courses in your TLC.

If you decide to join the TEACH House, we think you'd be interested in these TLCs:

  • Leadership & Service
  • Psychology: Explorations of Perception
  • Psychology: Growing a Mindset for Success
  • Researching Cultural Experience through Rappin’ & Writin’ (CBS students only)
