Wesleyan University president Michael S. Roth announced in a Washington Post blog post that the university will offer a three-year undergraduate degree. Roth says a three-year degree could save students about 20 percent off the cost of a degree. Roth, who graduated in three years when he was a student at Wesleyan in the 1970s, said the program is not for everyone but could be a pathway embraced by students concerned about the cost of education. While many colleges offer three-year degree programs, most of them have been at public universities rather than small, private liberal arts colleges, many of which have stressed the intangible benefits of the four-year undergraduate experience.
