Still Time to Register for
UW-Eau Claire's Winterim Courses

RELEASED: Nov. 12, 2007

EAU CLAIRE — There is still time to register for the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Winterim 2008, a three-week session that will run Jan. 2-18 and offer more than 60 classroom courses and 12 Web-based courses.

Winterim, which has been a part of the academic calendar at UW-Eau Claire since 1996, originally offered only 13 courses.

"The 2008 Winterim schedule includes more than 20 more classroom courses and four more Web-based courses than were offered just last year," said Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Steven Tallant. "We continue to try to outdo ourselves in providing choices that will appeal to a wide audience," Tallant said, noting that there are several courses that are new or may be of special interest right now.

For example, Dr. Ali Abootalebi is once again offering "Arab-Israeli Conflict" (POLS. 336/536), while Dr. Geoffrey Peterson is teaching "Film and Politics" (POLS 345/545). Lecturer Steve Spina is again teaching "Introduction to Religions of the World" (RELS 100), and the MBA program is offering "Understanding a Diverse Work Force" (MBA 733) taught by Jesse Dixon, director of UW-Eau Claire's Office of Multicultural Affairs.

A new course this Winterim — one of eight new courses being offered — is "Topics in American Literature-1865 to Present: Framing Chicago" (ENGL 348), which will focus on the literature, history, music and architecture of Chicago and feature historical documents and accounts, novels, and poetry set in Chicago that seek to interpret or "frame" the Chicago experience. The course will be taught by Dr. Monty Kozbial Ernst, research coordinator for the Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program.

Student registration began on Oct. 8 and open registration began Friday, Oct. 19. Information about these and other course offerings is on UW-Eau Claire's Registrar's Web site. Currently enrolled students and special students — including those not currently enrolled at UW-Eau Claire — can register up until the first day of class, but early registration is encouraged.

For more information, call the Registration and Scheduling office at 715-836-2425.
