First-Year Learning Communities

Lobo Louie

Are you a sophomore? Do you feel you missed out on your first-year experience at UNM last fall? GOOD NEWS! Select FLCs are now open to sophomores in the Fall 2022 semester. Register via Loboweb. (NOTE: You must register for both classes associated with each FLC!) Contact your advisor with questions.

The First-Year Learning Communities (FLCs) are designed to give students a rich, focused, and interdisciplinary learning experience in their first semester at UNM. An FLC consists of two general education courses linked together in content and theme. What students learn in one course, they apply in the other (Ex: What you learn in Psychology is what you are talking about in Public Speaking!) Both courses have the same 24 students and count for full credit – with every learning community earning at least six credit hours. Because FLC courses are built with general education classes, every FLC counts toward graduation – regardless of major!

Introduction to Ceramics is a "hands-on" art studio experience that introduces students to the terms, concepts, historical, and technical information that support creative development. Students will discover the methods of hand building, throwing on the wheel, and the dynamics of different clay bodies. This studio is a creative incubator and learning laboratory. Reduction and atmospheric firings, readings, lecturers, guest speakers, and field trips are included. This course provides a lifelong enjoyment of ceramics and all its diverse reflection of human development through time and the aesthetic qualities that clay possesses. Students' own clay creations will reflect their first studio experience in the UNM College of Fine Art.

This class will provide students with new knowledge, tools, and techniques with which to view and analyze film, and illustrate how what we see on screen both reflects and shapes our society. As we watch movies from around the world, students will learn the basic components of film, and film and cultural theory, and learn to connect them through the concepts provided in the linked course. In these intersections, through readings, and through in-class discussions that extend to both classes, critical thinking skills will be developed and honed. With the important themes of identity, community, activism, and resistance as through-lines, students will emerge from this course equipped with new ways to view and understand their everyday lives.

SECTION 618 IS RESTRICTED TO FRESHMAN

Many students are interested in working in healthcare but are either unaware of all of the career options that are available, or once a career is decided on, how exactly to achieve it.  This course offers students an overview of many health professions, giving them the chance to speak directly to representatives from programs available here at UNM. In addition, we will help students understand both the academic and non-academic components of a competitive application and how to fit those into a four-year plan of study.  Through a variety of readings and small group discussions, we will also begin to consider the challenges that many of us face as professionals charged with taking care of someone.
