Thematic Learning Community FAQs

Q. So, will I have two instructors?
A. Yes! Your Thematic Learning Community classes will be taught by 2 professors from each subject building the integrated course. In fact, professors interested in teaching a Learning Community class must fill out the Thematic Learning Community Application providing students with new creative and innovative ways of learning the course subject beyond what is taught in the courses separately.

Q. How do I register for a Thematic Learning Community course?
A. It’s easy! Just email CyFairLC@LoneStar.edu to register with your Student ID and Thematic Learning Community selection!

Q. How am I graded?
A. Each LC course has its own parameters, but most likely there will be ”community” projects that are graded by both instructors. Some Thematic Learning Community courses may have individual assessments or projects that focus only on one or the other discipline. Students receive grades for both courses.
