Living-Learning Communities

Learning Communities are designed to support you in your transition to St. Cloud State University and our community. Some communities are based in the classroom and use paired courses to create community, while others combine both an academic, in-class community with a living community in our residence halls that promotes working outside of classes to explore a field or interest.

We have a number of opportunities available for students entering SCSU for Fall 2015, including:


To be considered for the community, students must submit an application for on-campus housing
and complete the Learning Community interest form.

Mass Communications Learning Community

The Mass Communications Learning Community is ideal for students interested in the majors of public relations, advertising, print and photojournalism, radio broadcasting, and TV broadcasting and production. The learning community will be comprised of first-year students looking to explore the field of Mass Communications. Students will take two courses together in the Fall 2015 semester and two courses in the Spring 2016 semester. These four courses all count towards the Mass Communications major and/or general education.

Fall semester:
COMM 220 Introduction to Mass Communications
and CMST 192 Introduction to Communication Studies
Spring semester:
ETHS 201 Introduction to Ethnic Studies and COMM 242 Introduction to Multimedia Journalism.

In addition to taking coursework together, students in the learning community gain insider access to our TV and radio stations and university newspaper. They also have the opportunity to build connections with current students and faculty in the program and professionals in the field. Students will have personalized advising and acquire in-depth information on the requirements of obtaining a degree in Mass Communications.

If you would like to join the Mass Communications Learning Community, please let us know! It is recommended that students sign up prior to their Advising & Registration Day; by doing so, students will be pre-registered for their required courses. Spots are limited!
