Explore a topic that interests you, make friends, and set yourself up for success in one of IUPUI’s Themed Learning Communities (TLCs).
Every fall the School of Liberal Arts offers several TLCs for first-year students. Each TLC includes three or four courses connected by a theme, like gender, language, and power, or justice and democracy. One of the courses is a first-year seminar that helps you transition to college life.
Enrolling in a TLC has more benefits, too:
- Small classes, so you’ll become close with your classmates
- A faculty member, advisor, mentor, and librarian you can turn to for advice
- Field trips and other experiences that bring your classes to life and introduce you to opportunities
Each year a few TLCs are connected to the IUPUI Summer Bridge Program. You can enroll in a Bridge TLC to jump-start your college career.
At your IUPUI orientation, ask your advisor which TLC is best for you.
