UW-Eau Claire Continues To Add
Offerings to Winterim Session

 MAILED:  Nov. 10, 2003

EAU CLAIRE — The 2004 Winterim schedule at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire includes 16 new courses this year.

Winterim, which has been a part of the academic calendar at UW-Eau Claire since 1996, originally offered only 13 courses. The 2004 Winterim session offers more than 70 classroom courses and three Web-based courses during a three-week session that runs Jan. 5-23.

This year, two Women’s Studies courses were added, along with two English, two family health nursing and two psychology courses. The rest of the new classes for this year’s session range from accounting to biology to math.

“This Winterim session provides such a rich array of course offerings compared to where we started just eight years ago,” said Jan Morse, administrative officer for academic affairs. “I think with the number and variety of courses available, most students will find at least one course that will help them stay on track or get a step ahead on completing their degrees.”

The Winterim course offerings allow current students to make the most of their winter breaks, Morse said. “Winterim is a wonderful opportunity for students to accelerate degree completion, catch up on those few credits that are needed to achieve the next class level or take a course that is in high demand during the fall and spring semesters,” Morse said. Winterim also offers an opportunity for people not enrolled at the university to take a course.

“Winterim saved me an entire semester since I was able to take my marketing courses during break,” said senior public relations major Nate Jurowski, Whitehall, who has taken two Winterim classes. “It helped me catch up and get back on track.”

Many juniors and seniors are aware of the benefits of the Winterim session, Morse said. “I hope that as the program offerings expand more freshmen and sophomores will see the many advantages of taking a course during Winterim — it’s a benefit to all students.”

“Winterim classes are usually more relaxed and have more closeness and interaction than your typical semester-long class.” Jurowski said. “Winterim allows me to focus all of my attention on one class and not have to worry about three or four other classes.”

Information about these and other course offerings is on UW-Eau Claire’s Web site and on the Blugold System. Currently enrolled students and special students — including those not currently enrolled at UW-Eau Claire — can register until Jan. 2.
