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

RELEASED: Nov. 10, 2008

Winterim 2009 imageEAU CLAIRE — There is still time to register for the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Winterim 2009, a three-week session that will run Jan. 5-23 and offer more than 60 classroom and 17 online courses.

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

Winterim offers exciting opportunities for students, said Interim Provost Marty Wood. During Winterim, students can earn up to three credits, enroll in high demand classes, experience smaller class sizes and enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere, he said. With more than 60 courses to choose from, there is a class of interest for everyone, he said.

For example, Dr. Ali Abootalebi will again offer "Arab-Israeli Conflict," while Dr. Geoffrey Peterson will teach "Film and Politics." Lecturer Steve Spina will teach "Introduction to Religions of the World," and the MBA program will offer "Understanding a Diverse Work Force," taught by Jesse Dixon, director of the Office of Multicultural Affairs.

"Classical Mythology" — a popular class that focuses on Greek and Roman myths and legends that have a central place in the Western tradition — will be offered for the first time during Winterim this year. The class will be taught by Dr. Matthew Waters, associate professor of foreign languages and history.

Student registration began Oct. 6 and open registration began Oct. 17.

Information about these and other course offerings can be found 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.
