Registration for Summer Session Under Way
at UW-Eau Claire

RELEASED: Feb. 16, 2006

Summer Session posterEAU CLAIRE — Registration for the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Summer Session 2006 began Feb 6. Community members are invited to explore the wealth of educational opportunities offered at UW-Eau Claire when open registration begins Feb. 21.

"We always try to offer something for everyone during summer session, and this year is no exception," said Janice Morse, administrative officer for Academic Affairs. "There are approximately 240 undergraduate and graduate courses to choose from this summer, including 37 Web-based courses we're offering to help meet the needs of people who find it difficult to come to campus."

The online courses are designed to be appealing both to working adults who are trying to fit classes into already busy schedules and to traditional-age students who want to earn credits while traveling or working at home during the summer. A variety of courses are being offered by the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business, the College of Nursing and Health Sciences and the College of Education and Human Sciences. For more information about these online courses, check the Web at www.uwec.edu/summer.

Summer Session 2006 also offers approximately 200 on-campus courses that range from the study of the culture of third wave feminism or Mass Media Ethics to calculus or psychopharmacology. This summer, area educators can take advantage of more than 33 courses specifically aimed at their needs. Students also may earn credits at off-campus locations, studying, for example, tropical environments in Costa Rica; biology at the Pigeon Lake Field Station in Chequamegon National Forest in Northern Wisconsin; geologic features and processes in the Rocky Mountains; or marine biology and geology at the Gulf Coast Research Lab in Ocean Springs, Miss.

Summer Session participants also may take advantage of the numerous recreational opportunities in the area by renting some of the wide variety of outdoor equipment available at UW-Eau Claire's Hilltop Center, or participating in some of the free-time recreation and fitness center activities offered throughout the summer.

The three-week Summer Session will run May 22-June 9, and the eight-week session will run June 12-Aug. 4.

For descriptions, times and dates for all Summer Session classes, including online courses, visit UW-Eau Claire's Web site or call Registration and Scheduling at (715) 836-2425.
