The Cave Hill campus of the University of the West Indies has introduced a number of new programmes to meet the rapidly changing labour market.
Principal Eudine Barriteau in revealing the new programmes which will be available from September, says they are in keeping with the University's 2017-2022 strategic plan and are being introduced across many faculties.
For example, the campus is taking a closer look at artificial intelligence and will be offering a Master of Science in Information Technology with several specialisations. The School of Education will be offering a new Bachelor of Education in early childhood care and education. Several other faculties will also see new programmes.
Professor Barriteau says they are also looking at positioning Barbados as a destination for health tourism.
Professor Barriteau says every degree and certificate from UWI comes from an educational institution with internationally recognised accreditation.
She says for instance their medical students are the only ones graduating on the island, from an institution that is accredited not once, but twice.
