April 19, 2010– Today our economy has already begun to climb out of a recession that costs many people their jobs and forced others back to school. With admissions into colleges only increases, what was once an emerging idea could now be a reality. Introducing a three-year bachelor’s degree as a way to reduce college costs and better serve students has begun to take hold. In a March 11, 2010 article from Inside Higher Ed entitled, “Express Lane to a B.A.” talks about the pros and cons of implementing such a program. However, despite the surge in interest to such a program by colleges such as the University of North Carolina and Georgia Southwestern State University, some experts are critical and wonder whether or not students will be able to finish their degrees in only three years.
