Franklin Pierce University said on Wednesday that it would close six academic programs, The Keene Sentinel reported.
The New Hampshire university will no longer offer degrees in American studies, arts management, fine arts, graphic communications, mathematics, and theater and dance. Current students in those fields will be allowed until May 2016 to complete their degrees. Full-time faculty members in the affected departments will be reassigned to other areas.
A university spokeswoman, Lisa Murray, said she did not know how many students and members of the faculty and staff would be affected, or how many courses would be eliminated.
