UVI Business Professor and Summer Sessions Coordinator Dr. Tonjia Coverdale encouraged everyone to see what UVI Summer Sessions have to offer. Dr. Coverdale said courses may be beneficial for people of all ages who want to enhance their education, re-tool their skills for a career change, or start a degree program.
"You don't have to be enrolled or matriculated at UVI to take courses," Dr. Coverdale said.
UVI Vice Provost for Access and Enrollment Management Dr. Judith Edwin said that Summer Sessions also provide a good opportunity for matriculated students to stay in sequence with courses for their respective degree programs.
In addition to traditional classes, UVI offers on-line classes. They range from courses in history, business, English, criminal justice and political science. A few of the courses available through UVI ONLINE this summer are: Web Applications Development, Statistics for Management Decisions, Production & Operations Management, Foundations of Education, Black American Literature, Advanced Creative Writing, Fundamentals of Finance, History of the U. S., Probability for Teachers, General Psychology, Life Span Development, and Changes in the Natural World.
