Nine USI credit courses will be offered at two off-campus locations during the fall 2012 semester. Designed with commuter students in mind, USI Nearby courses are geared toward students who live and/or work on Evansville’s east side.
Taught by USI faculty, USI Nearby courses meet one night a week or on Saturdays. Most of the offerings meet University Core Curriculum requirements, which help students make significant progress toward educational requirements and a degree. Graduate-level courses offered at Innovation Pointe provide a convenient location for students who work in downtown Evansville.
CMST: Intro to Public Speaking, PSY 322: Abnormal Psychology, HIST 102: US Since 1865, HUM 212: West Traditions Humanities II, and PSY 201: Intro to Psychology will be offered at the National Guard Armory located at 3300 E. Division Street.
Four graduate level courses, including COMM 602: Qualitative Research Method Communications, PA 611: Leadership Skills in Public Administration, PA 632: Public Administration, and SOCW 608: Advanced Social Work Skills, will be offered at Innovation Pointe located at 318 Main Street.
"USI Nearby is a great solution for evening students driving from Evansville’s east side," said Lee Ann Shafer, academic program manager in the Division of Outreach and Engagement. "The National Guard Armory is near the Lloyd Expressway and many students drive right by it on the way to the USI campus. There is a big savings in drive time and fuel costs for students who take classes at the Armory. Innovation Pointe’s Main Street location is perfect for many USI graduate students.”
New, current, and returning students may enroll in fall classes through MyUSI. Classes begin on Monday, August 20. Late registration will begin on the first day of class and run through Friday, August 24.
