Students at the University of Wisconsin-Fond du Lac will be able to participate in the UW System Flexible Option degree program according to John Short, campus executive officer and dean.
“As a campus of the University of the Wisconsin Colleges, UW-Fond du Lac is excited to participate in the UW System’s Flexible Option,” Short said. “The Flexible Option is primarily designed to serve adults who want to obtain a college degree. Increasing the number of college graduates will strengthen our local economy by meeting the needs of employers for qualified employees.”
UW Colleges will provide general education, liberal arts freshman and sophomore level offerings that will be available in a competency-based, self-paced format as early as fall 2013. Students will be able to complete competencies and assessments in biology, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, engineering, physics, psychology, health, exercise science and athletics, women’s studies, business, political science, English, Spanish, geography, anthropology and sociology, history, art, and music. The UW Colleges will work to provide the Associate of Arts and Science degree via the UW Flexible Option.
