Sunday, November 7, 2010
WARRENSBURG, Mo. (AP) — Journalism and geography are among 10 undergraduate degree programs that will be phased out at the University of Central Missouri.
The state’s Coordinating Board for Higher Education has ordered all 35 of Missouri’s two- and four-year public colleges and universities to identify so-called low-producing programs.
Those programs are defined as majors that failed to produce an average of at least 10 graduates in each of the past three years.
At Central Missouri, the Muleskinner newspaper reports that 10 undergraduate majors will be phased out over three years, although courses in some of the programs may still be offered.
The newspaper says the other eight programs are speech communication, liberal studies, general recreation, earth science, agricultural technology, industrial technology, French and tourism.
