Take Courses with Your Peers

Carolina Women's Community students take classes called linked courses with the peers who live around them and share their interests.

Carolina Women's Community Linked Course Sections

  • WGST 112: Introduction to Women's & Gender Studies
  • PHIL 213: Communicating Moral Issues

Students in these course sections will live on the same floor together in business community housing. Seating for linked courses is limited and acceptance is based on the date you were admitted to the university. 

Why Linked Courses

Research shows students who take courses within their learning community are more likely to take ownership of their academic career and be more engaged with their community.


Community Type

Associated Community

These are smaller learning communities within residence halls focused on an area of study or student interest. Students in these communities will meet others who share their interests, and have unique opportunities to pursue those interests outside of the classroom.
