Is A 4 Year Degree Really Needed

Future college students won’t necessarily need four year degrees to get ahead. That was a message heard by UW System Regents last week on a new national report that stated the UW should start telling prospective students what their chances are for getting jobs in the fields they pursue and how much they can expect to be paid. We talked with Regent Brent Smith of La Crosse after their meeting.

A Georgetwon Proffesor told the Regents that a growing number of jobs will need at least some college education and women will almost have to attend college to have any hope of making a living wage. He said that by 2018, over six of every10 Wisconsin jobs will need at least a year of technical college training. And Smith says that could be a big positive for the Systems 2-year campuses.
