Themed Learning Communities
A themed learning community (TLC) is a cluster of courses linked together by a theme attended by the same group of 25 students. This allows students to build close friendships with peers and connections with faculty. In the TLC, students explore a central theme with experiences in and out of the classroom, forming connections between classwork and their life experiences.
Whether you have a major in mind or are exploring options, an orientation advisor can help you pick a TLC that will work for your degree program. Each TLC includes a first-year seminar and courses from the list of IUPUI general education core courses, so if you change majors, the credits you earn in your TLC can count toward graduation.
