Sophomore Learning Communities

UC’s signature approach to undergraduate study, Integrated Core Learning, recognizes that students are constantly reflecting on their educational goals and seeking greater accomplishments.  To help students acheive their goals the Center for First Year Experience & Learning Communities has teamed with the Cincinnati Sophomore Initiative to offer advanced level learning communities where students engage with more complex course material.  Interested students should speak with their academic advisor and major professors to determine learning community opportunities available for their field of study.
