About Freshman Learning Communities
What is a Freshman Learning Community (FLC)?
FLCs are two
classes that are taught together
One of the
classes is a Seminar (a small class with a theme)
The Seminar is
linked with a course that’s part of UNM Core
These classes are
taught using cooperative and collaborative learning methods that engage you as
an active, involved learner, with a minimum of “lecture”
readings, problems, papers and presentations of the Seminar and the linked
course are integrated and unified
Each class holds
up to 25 students
