FREE Online College Course for Veterans--Study Literature, Art, History, and Philosophy and Earn 3 Transferable College Credits! No Prior Education Required!
THE CLEMENTE VETERANS’ INITIATIVE (CVI) NEWARK IS A FREE COLLEGE COURSE IN THE HUMANITIES THAT EXPLORES THEMES OF WAR AND RECONCILIATION THROUGH PHILOSOPHY, LITERATURE, ART, US HISTORY, AND WRITING.
CVI Newark encourages and accepts applications from all veterans, regardless of race, gender identity, service years, deployment history, disability status, or discharge status. Family members and friends of veterans are also welcome to apply. A high school diploma or GED is not required for admission.
The course is free and seeks to serve veterans who are challenged by their transition from soldier to civilian, and who are looking for an engaged community of peers to explore great moments of history, art, philosophy, and literature.
For those who aspire to attend college in the future, CVI Newark also offers an opportunity to experience a college classroom and earn 3 transferable college credits from Bard College at no cost, and without using any VA benefits.
All books and instructional materials are provided to students free of charge.
CVI Newark will run from February 8-May 27, 2021. Classes will meet via Zoom twice a week from 6:30-8pm.
