    Re: Is this correct about semicolon?

    Ummm I should do it this way, " The university will offer the following: 4 year programs and short courses." Or " The university will offer 4 year programs and short courses."
    Thank you for all sharing, you guys are always gurus here.

    Can you provide further context?
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.

    He has his answer. You have your context.
    It's now blatantly obvious that he didn't mean, “The university will offer the following 4 year programs and short courses:
