UVI SPRING TERM INCLUDES NEW ON-LINE COURSE

Registration and orientation for the spring semester classes at the University of the Virgin Islands will take place on both the St. Thomas and St. Croix campuses Monday, Jan. 10, through Wednesday, Jan 12. Students may register late through Tuesday, Jan. 18.
Classes begin on Thursday, Jan. 13.
For the first time, Creative Writing will be offered as an on-line course, taught by Dr. Patricia Harkins-Pierre of the Humanities Division faculty. For this first-time offering, class enrollment will be limited to residents of the territory.
The class, officially designated English 465: Selected Topics – Creative Writing, will involve the study of language and literature. Students will be challenged, through various reading and writing assignments, to become critical of their own work and that of other writers of poetry, fiction and drama. Students will be required to compose poems, short stories and a one-act play.
Those interested in taking the course via the Internet are asked to call Harkins-Pierre at 693-1357.
