Take Classes With Your Peers

Galen students can take courses together, called linked courses, that cover a shared interest or fulfill a major requirement.

Linked Courses

  • History 108: Science and Technology in World History

  • MART 210: Digital Media Arts Fundamentals

  • SPCH 140: Public Communication

  • CSCE 145: Algorithmic Design I

  • COLA 298: Entrepreneurism and Free Enterprise

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 Types

Faculty Principal Community

These are themed, building-wide learning communities staffed by a faculty member who is an expert in the theme. Students get in-depth experience with their community topic, and gain a greater understanding of how to apply that experience outside the classroom and after they graduate.

Linked Course Community

These are academically focused communities where students live near each other and take major classes together. This helps students connect with others who have similar interests, gives them an opportunity to form relationships outside the classroom and gives them access to academic support when they need it.
