The University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus has rolled out a new range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

The nine new programmes which will fall under the faculties of Humanities and Education and Science and Technology, are expected to begin in the upcoming semester which begins in September.

The programmes include: BEd Early Childhood Care and Education, Minor in Chinese Studies, Minor in Creative Writing, BSc Major in Environmental Science, MFA in Creative Writing, MSc Information Technology (offered with specialisations in Enterprise Systems, Mobile Applications or Web Development), Postgraduate Diploma in Information Technology, MScN Nursing Education and MScN Nursing Administration.

Speaking at the launch yesterday morning at the 3 W’s Pavilion, principal Profession Eudine Barriteau said the university’s continued aim was to provide exciting programmes for their prospective students and to assure strategic partners that they were providing a level of education to advance all dimensions of the human resource needs of Barbados and the region.

“The Campus aims to satisfy the changing labour market needs of public and private sector agencies and businesses, non-governmental organisations, and individuals in search of new knowledge. We are guided by The UWI’s Mission to advance learning, create knowledge and foster innovation for the positive transformation of the Caribbean and the wider world,” she said.

Barriteau added that some of the new programmes being implemented were geared towards strengthening interdisciplinary studies. (DB)
