First-Year Learning Communities

First-Year Learning Communities

First-year learning communities offer an alternative pathway through the first year.

MIT’s first-year learning communities offer a distinct kind of learning environment that provides first-year students with the opportunity to study and socialize as part of a smaller community while still taking advantage of the intellectual and cultural diversity of the Institute as a whole. Concourse, Experimental Study Group, and Terrascope are part of the Office of Experiential Learning while Media Arts and Sciences is part of the Media Lab.
