JEFFERSON CITY — The Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education is beginning a study of college degree programs to see if some should be eliminated.
Missouri has about 4,000 academic programs at public higher education institutions.
The state review is aimed at identifying bachelor's degree programs that average fewer than 10 graduates a year, master's programs that average fewer than five graduates a year and doctoral programs that average fewer than three graduates a year.
The Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education has authority to approve new degree programs but not to eliminate them.
Department spokeswoman Kathy Love says the review's findings could be used by college and university administrators to make their own decisions about continuing the degree programs.
