English, communication studies classes offered downtown

Released: 01/06/2006

LSU Alexandria is offering three undergraduate classes in downtown Alexandria during the Spring 2006 semester which begins Jan. 17.

The classes were added to the regular schedule after city and university officials earlier this week announced a partnership to bring higher education services to downtown.

Under the partnership, the university will offer undergraduate credit and continuing education courses at the Alexandria Museum of Art, located near City Hall. Course offerings will expand in the semesters to come, Chancellor Robert Cavanaugh said.

The list so far includes three courses, two beginning this month and a third scheduled for the B-term, a consolidated academic term that runs from March to May.

Scheduled for the regular semester are English 1001, which will meet from 5:15-8:05 p.m. on Mondays, and Communication Studies 1061, which will be held from 5:15-8:05 p.m. on Tuesdays.

University Studies 1001 will meet during the B-term from 12:05-12:55 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Regular registration for the spring semester is Jan. 11-12 on the main campus of LSU Alexandria. Classes begin Jan. 17.

In addition to the main campus and the Museum of Art, the university offers courses at the Learning Center for Rapides Parish, located at England Airpark. Students can register for those courses either at the main campus or at the Learning Center.
