Learning Community

LC

The One Health Learning Community is a unique educational opportunity for freshman and sophomore undergraduate students. This educational approach brings together students from diverse backgrounds to introduce the concept of One Health and provide a focused, high-impact series of exposures to the disciplines that interact within the framework of One Health.

The One Health Learning Community meets weekly during the Spring semesters. Enrollment is limited to 20-25 students, so each student has the ability to interact with faculty and be an active participant in a dynamic learning environment. Lectures feature Texas A&M University faculty from multiple disciplines and students participate in experiential learning opportunities, including hands-on workshops, field trips, and interactions with on-campus research teams.

All majors are encouraged to apply.
