Linked Courses

Linked Courses are pairs, or clusters, of courses a student takes with the same group of other students. Usually, these courses are scheduled back-to-back, and the faculty members teaching them weave syllabi, reading and writing assignments so concepts, ideas, practices and approaches are enriched in each course. Research indicates students who enroll in Linked Courses persist from semester to semester and earn higher GPAs than students who do not.
