Options for higher education continue to grow for people in Janesville and Rock County.

In recent years, UW-Rock County in Janesville began offering four-year engineering degrees in cooperation with UW-Platteville. Then it started offering four-year nursing degrees in a joint program with UW-Oshkosh and nearby Blackhawk Technical College. This week, it announced it will unveil a new bachelor of applied arts and sciences degree starting this fall.

What will this mean to local residents, area businesses and economic development potential? We’ll share our perspectives in our editorial Saturday.
