In a report addressed to the Missouri Department of Higher Education, Chancellor Brady Deaton recommended that 12 low-producing MU degree programs be eliminated because they are an extra cost to the university.
Here are some examples of the degree programs recommended to be eliminated:
- Bachelor's degree in Environmental Geology
- Master's degree in Natural Resources
- Bachelor's degree Education Specialist
Along with the 12 programs recommended for elimination, the university also plans on reconfiguring 34 other majors, which might include combining faculties and resources.
The decision is not final yet and the university hopes to continue discussing the topic.
Do you think MU should cut low-producing degree programs?
