U. of Missouri Will Reduce Degree Offerings by 16

After conducting a state-mandated review of programs that attract small numbers of students, the University of Missouri at Columbia will reduce the number of degrees it offers by 16, the university announced Thursday. According to the Columbia Daily Tribune, the university will combine some programs—French and Spanish, for instance, will be merged in a Romance Languages department, and three agriculture-department programs will be rolled into one—while eliminating a handful of others, such as a doctorate in communication sciences and disorders. The university’s plan will require approval by the state’s Department of Higher Education and the Coordinating Board for Higher Education.
