Living Learning Communities

Living Learning Community participants stand in downtown D.C.

American University offers a number of special living environments known as Living Learning Communities (LLCs). LLCs are cohorts of students who live and explore a common interest or academic pursuit together. Some include required courses that students must take and others are organized around a theme or community interest that students wish to learn more about. Admittance to programs vary based on individual requirements.
