Course Offerings

College Learning Studies (CLS) is housed within the School of Student Affairs and is committed to supporting and enriching the student learning experience with academic curricula for the whole student.  This is accomplished by placing an emphasis on the integration of a student's personal and academic growth and by fostering an environment for learning that provides a variety of in-class and out-of-class learning opportunities that meet student needs and expectations.  Currently, courses include a focus on the first-year experience and career development.  Future courses will focus on the needs of the student on academic probation and returning adult learners.
