MiraCosta College Linked Courses: Big Society

MiraCosta College is offering a linked learning community this spring, BIG SOCIETY: Where do you fit in? These two courses, to be taken together by the same group of students, are designed to reinforce and enhance critical thinking, reading, and writing of sociological topics. Students eligible for ENGL 50 may enroll, and participants will enjoy more support in their development of the academic reading and writing expectations of the transfer level course, SOC 101. 
  • Students who enroll in SOC 101/ENGL 50 will benefit from the following collaborations:
  • SOC and ENGL assignments overlap to reinforce concepts and skills for success.
  • Instructors work together to ensure greater connections with students and their learning needs.
  • An in-class Writing Center consultant provides supplemental support in the English class, and an after-class study group provides another opportunity for academic growth. 
The linked courses are offered at the following times:
  • ENGL 50, section #1112: Monday/Wednesday, 11:30 a.m. – 1:20 p.m. on the Oceanside Campus, located at 1 Barnard Drive.  Instructor: Teresa Guinon.
  • SOC 101, section #2495: Monday/Wednesday, 9:30 a.m. – 10:50 p.m. also on the Oceanside Campus. Instructor: Thao Ha.  
SOC 101 is accepted for credit at Cal State University and the University of California and fulfills a General Education requirement; ENGL 50 earns associate degree credit. 

Students must enroll in both courses.
