Nov. 5, 2002 – The University of the Virgin Islands will offer a new science course in meteorology and an English course on Shakespeare during the 2003 spring semester.
Introduction to Meteorology is an Asynchronous Distance Learning (ADL) course that is part of the American Meteorology Society's On-line Weather Studies program. The four-credit course is considered a laboratory course, although there is no formal laboratory session. Students will perform experiments in their own homes. There will be weekly, one-hour tutorials on the St. Thomas and St. Croix campuses.
Prerequisites for Introduction to Meteorology are ENG 120 (and SCI 100 for those required to take it). Co-requisites are MAT 140 or 143.
The English Selected Topics course curriculum will include studying Shakespeare's sonnets and narrative poems. Three plays will also be studied: a comedy, "The Merchant of Venice;" a history, "Richard III;" and a romance, "The Tempest."
UVI registration is Nov. 4-13, 2002. Late and new student registration is Jan. 8, 2003.
