UWL to add online degrees for fall semester

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT)–Online learning is how many students are finishing their semesters this spring, but for UW System schools it’s becoming a way to learn after the pandemic.

Schools in the UW System will be offering two new degrees that can be earned entirely online.

An associate degree in arts and sciences and a master degree in cyber security will be open for students to enroll starting this fall.

It’s expected that the demand for cyber security jobs will increase by 13 percent over the next 10 years.
