UW flex offerings don't fit a Walker return

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker wants to finish his college course work using a new flexible degree option through the University of Wisconsin System.

One problem: There are no immediate plans to offer classes in the fields he's interested in.

The flex degree option program started in January offering degrees in health care, information technology, and business and management. New offerings are in the works for other areas, but not economics or political science, which Walker studied in college.

UW Extension interim chancellor Aaron Brower says offerings are being constantly evaluated. He says it takes up to 18 months to launch a new flex degree option. Brower also says Walker has not asked UW to offer a program that he could take, even though he says he wants to earn his degree.
