In the regular session of its quarterly meeting on Oct. 24, on the Albert A. Sheen Campus, the University of the Virgin Islands Board of Trustees approved the University’s first Ph.D. program. Starting in Fall 2016, UVI will offer a three-year advanced level degree in Creative Leadership for Innovation and Change. Business, education, public administration and health care are just a few of the areas of study that this trans-disciplinary Ph.D. program will encompass.

Doctoral students will have the option to take traditional face-to-face classes, online classes or a combination to the two. The program is designed to be a three-year, nine-semester program that will utilize Fall, Spring and Summer as full semesters.
