Montgomery College Learning Community Program


What is a Learning Community?

In a Learning Community or Paired Course, you take two different classes together in one convenient block of time. Students really get to know each other and their professors well. The Paired Courses are coordinated, so the material in each class reinforces the other and enhances learning. The result is a learning community where students and faculty help each other learn, grow, and succeed.

Students in Learning Communities have compact, easy schedules, with one class right after the other and are more likely to:

  • Pass courses
  • Earn good grades
  • Continue in college
  • Practice team-building, an important skill
  • Understand the relationships between subject areas
  • Really connect with faculty and classmates
